Employee Wellness - Smoking Cessation: Ready, Set, Quit! 

Most people who smoke know that it is not good for them. Studies show that most people who smoke really want to break the habit. Yet they continue to smoke. Why? Because it's an addiction. Once you start smoking, quitting is tough! Quitting is hard, yet people quit for good all the time. One thing that can improve your chances of quitting smoking for good is to make a plan. When you make a plan, you prepare yourself as well as you can for the temporary discomfort of nicotine withdrawal. You put tools and ideas in place to get through it—and quit for good!
