How to quit smoking!

 #TYMK At the end of the post on the pain of smoking, a question was posted- "What mnemonic is used when making a "quit smoking" plan with a patient (Clue - It begins with "S").

.
Here's the answer:
S = Set a Quit Date.
T = Tell Family, Friends, Doctor, And Co-workers You Are Quitting.
A = Anticipate And Plan For The Challenges You Will Face
R = Remove Tobacco-Related Products from Your Life
T = Talk to Your Doctor About Getting Help to Quit.
.
Counseling a patient with these steps can help prepare them to quit smoking!
