Quitting smoking is hard, so reward yourself for your successes. Made it through the day without a cigarette? Treat yourself to something special. Made it through the week? Count how much you've saved by not buying cigarettes. Use the savings for a special treat or invest the money for the future. Reward yourself for not smoking by doing something you enjoy every day, such as spending extra time with your children or grandchildren, going to a ballgame, soaking in the tub, or watching a movie. Each small success can help you reach your goal to quit smoking for good.
