It takes time and planning to quit smoking. Most smokers pass back and forth through five stages of change on their journey to quit smoking. These stages are the same worldwide and learning about them will help you in your own quitting process.

Personal Story

"I think of myself as becoming a non-smoker. It is more positive self-talk than 'quitting'. Quitting feels like a sacrifice. So I stopped thinking about what I was giving up -- and started thinking about what I was going to be getting as a non-smoker. The more I say it, 'becoming a non-smoker' the better I feel."
