I Quit Monday

Submitted by admin on Thu, 09/14/2017 - 09:49

Quit and Stay Quit Monday is a smoking and tobacco cessation program that can be used by individuals, quit smoking programs, and smoking cessation counselors to help smokers quit smoking, re-quit smoking, or recommit to quitting smoking.

Why pick Monday as your quit day?

Remember when you made that New Year’s resolution to quit smoking? But despite your best intentions, you got off track and swore to try again next year. You’re not alone. Many first time quitters make several quit attempts before they successfully stay quit.

That’s where Monday comes in. Rather than waiting for an annual event to try stopping smoking again, use Monday as a day to quit, recommit to your quit, or quit smoking again after a weekend relapse.

What’s more is, when you quit on Monday, you’re not alone. Smoking cessation research shows that millions of people are thinking about quitting on Monday, so you can seek out other quitters for support.
