Abstract

Quitting smoking is the best investment a smoker can
make to improve their health. Making the decision to
quit is a big one. If you’re supporting someone to quit it is
important to recognise that they have to want to do it for
their own reasons, and not because of pressure from a friend
or family member. Take your cue from the person who is
quitting and be strategic in the support that you offer.
