The most successful quitters get help. 80% of smokers who quit try to do it
without help and it’s no coincidence that the same percentage (80%) also go
right back to smoking. Don’t be afraid to ask for support from your family,
friends and colleagues. Tell them you might be irritable and on edge for a few days
and ask them to be tolerant. Support is key.
A self-help group is perhaps one of the best sources of support because you
can speak face-to-face with experts and also with other people who are in the
same boat as you are. Click here to find free professional advice and
