Each person who decides to stop tobacco use is different in how they would like to receive support. Some people find it helpful to have their support network ask how itâ€™s going and offer praise and encouragement. Others may find this type of support â€œnaggingâ€ and prefer to have their support network just be available to spend time sharing in nonsmoking activities such as going to a movie theatre.
For the most part, it is best to identify specific people who will support your efforts to quit smoking. Itâ€™s important to let your support people know the best ways that they can be of help to you. Only you know what they are so discuss this with your support person in advance and keep the lines of communication open.
