It It usually takes smokers several times to stop smoking for good.
The good news is millions of people successfully quit smoking each year, and you can be successful too!
Ask yourself these three questions:
Do I really want to quit smoking?
Am I ready to make some changes in my daily routine?
Am I willing to put up with some temporary discomfort?
If you answered “yes” to all three questions; congratulations - you're on you way!
