To Manage Quit Day

5. Stay Positive
Quitting smoking is difficult. It happens one minute…one hour, one day at a time. Try not to think about quitting forever. Attend today and time will grow. It helps to stay positive. Your quiet day may not be perfect, but it doesn’t matter everything, no smoke, no one blows. Reward yourself to be smokefree for 24 hours. You deserve it. And if you don’t feel comfortable to quit today, set a quiet day that makes sense to you. It’s fine if you need a few more days to prepare to quit smoking.
