It can be tough but keep trying
Maybe you’ve tried to quit before and failed. It can be tough to quit smoking – the nicotine in cigarettes is highly addictive. Cigarettes can be more addictive than cocaine, alcohol or marijuana.
No one says quitting is easy, but every day, people show it can be done.
Many smokers make several attempts before quitting successfully long-term. If they can do it, so can you.
