Make this the year you quit for good!

Everyone knows the health risks associated with smoking, but do you know the health benefits of quitting?  People who become non-smokers are less likely to develop lung cancer, heart disease and emphysema.  Most people usually find they have more energy after they quit smoking and their sense of taste and smell improves.

Quitting smoking also saves you money.  How much money do you spend in a year on cigarettes?  Think of some of the other ways you could spend it.  You may also be eligible for lower life insurance premiums and save even more cash.

What is your reason to quit?  You only need one.

When you are ready, here are some tips on how to make your next attempt to quit successful:

  • Remove all cigarettes and ashtrays from your home and car.
  • Ask your family, friends and co-workers for support.
  • Avoid smoking areas.
  • Breathe in deeply when you feel the urge to smoke.
  • Keep yourself busy.
  • Reward yourself often for your success.
