Did you know that working with a healthcare provider such as a doctor, dentist, or pharmacist can greatly increase your chances of quitting smoking for good? Schedule a visit with your healthcare provider and explain to them that you want to quit tobacco and you’d like their help.
Give your healthcare provider details about why you’re quitting, how many times you’ve attempted to quit before, how you’re preparing to be successful at quitting. Ask them any questions you may have about smoking and your health, the process of quitting, how to make the most of quit smoking aids, or others. It might be helpful to write down what you want to ask and bring that to your appointment. Not only will they be thrilled to hear it, they will have resources to help you along the way.
