From those of us at Smokefree.gov: Congratulations! You are taking the first step to quitting cigarette smoking.
We wrote this guide with the help of ex-smokers and experts. It can help you prepare to quit and support you in the days and weeks after you quit. It also describes problems to expect when you quit. Being prepared can help you through the hard times.

Preparing to quit?
This easy-to-read, 20-page booklet summarizes the 700+ page Surgeon General’s report released in December of 2010. The booklet provides practical information about the dangers of tobacco use and what people can do to quit tobacco use and protect themselves and their families from exposure to tobacco smok
There are currently more than 600 smoking cessation research studies going on around the world to help determine the best, most effective ways to help people stop smoking and stay quit. Although the studies on this page have been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the studies are conducted by researchers outside of NIH, usually at universities or medical schools. You can find out more information about each study by clicking on the links provided.
If you are looking for a way to stop smoking, participating in a research study may be right for you. People in research studies can receive new treatments before they are widely available and can play a more active role in their health care and treatment.
