Coping With Stress When You Quit Smoking

When we're stressed, the urge to smoke can be intense. We think we need cigarettes to calm us, but in fact, smoking creates more stress than it dispels.

How you cope with stress when you quit smoking will have a profound effect on your comfort level and on your ability to remain smoke free.

Learning how to cope with stress without a cigarette in hand is difficult when we first quit smoking. But with a few tools and some practice, you'll find it's less challenging than you might have expected.

Take The Quit Smoking Monday Pledge

Healthy Monday encourages us to think of every Monday as a day that we can begin work anew on goals that we have for ourselves. If you're still smoking, put your cigarettes down and get started on your quit program today.

We all have the ability to quit smoking successfully, and we all deserve a life that is free of addiction. Honor your life by choosing Monday as the day to start and reinforce your quit program.

You can quit smoking ... and we’re here to help you, one simple Monday at a time.
