Protect your family—become tobacco-free

As a loving, responsible parent, you want the best for your children. Quitting tobacco is one of the best things that you can do for your family. Did you know your children are exposed to tobacco smoke—even if you smoke in front of a window, a fan, or in the bathroom? In addition, tobacco smoke stays in the car long after you put your cigarette out. Smoking hurts you and your family—ask your child's doctor or nurse to help you quit today.

This tactics can help you quit:

  • Set a quit date.
    “I’m quitting on ___________, and I’m quitting for good.”

  • Tell loved ones.
    “I’m quitting smoking for good, and I could use your support.”

  • Anticipate tough spots.
    “There will be tough times, but I’m going to quit for good.”

  • Remove tobacco products.
    “I’m going to throw away all my cigarettes and ashtrays.”
