Often times people try to quit smoking without letting those who are close know. They don’t want to be seen as a failure if they don’t successfully quit. A little education can go a long way, even for those that are supporting your efforts to quit smoking. It typically takes several tries before a smoker is able to kick the habit. Some of the best quit smoking help is to get support from family, friends, and coworkers. Let them know when you are quitting and what to expect. You may even want to ask for forgiveness in advance for being short from time to time. Be sure to let your boss know what you are doing in case you have a moment when you say something you shouldn’t. People can be very understanding when they know what you are going through but the only way that will happen is if you tell them.
