Fact: It Usually Takes Multiple Attempts to Quit Successfully

Some smokers require as many as eight to 10 attempts before they stop smoking for good. “You probably fell off the first time you tried to ride a bike,” says Dr. Cutler. “But you got back on and kept trying until you learned how to ride successfully.” In the same way, quitting for good is a process. Over time, you’ll learn what method works for you and what doesn’t. Some people need individual counseling. Some do great with nicotine replacement, while others just go cold turkey. With each quit attempt, you’ll gain experience that will bring you closer to your goal.
