A new CDC feature article provides support to people who want to make quitting smoking their New Year’s resolution. In addition to providing practical tips, the article also promotes free resources to help them be successful.
Those who resolve to quit smoking are encouraged to explore the many free quit resources available that can increase their chances of success, including quitlines and other cessation support resources such as the National Texting Portal that connects adults who smoke with mobile text message-based support to help them quit smoking, and the quickSTART app that offers tailored tips, inspiration, and challenges as they journey to quitting smoking.
In this article, Beatrice R., a woman featured in the Tips From Former Smokers® campaign, tells the story of how in 2010 she quit smoking for good by developing a plan and gaining support from her family, including her young sons. A letter from one of her sons provided the motivation she needed as she was going through the process of quitting.
