How Do Quit Smoking Programs Work?

Quit-smoking programs and support groups help smokers spot and deal with problems they have when trying to quit. The programs teach problem-solving and other coping skills.

They can help you quit for good by:

  • Helping you better understand why you smoke

  • Teaching you how to handle withdrawal and stress

  • Teaching you tips to help resist the urge to smoke

These programs can work great if you’re willing to commit to them. The more support you get, the more likely you will quit for good. So be sure to go to all the sessions. If you want to try a quit-smoking program or support group to help you quit, call your state quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW). They can help connect you with groups in your area.
