Welcome to your life.

Your non-smoking life.

This post was created to encourage smokers to become non-smokers.

To implement tiny changes in their lives to help them quit smoking RIGHT NOW.

I want to give you a few key takeaways so you can change your LIFE in the next 24 hours.

Give yourself a special gift if you smoke.

The gift of quitting.

Cancer is fifty percent preventable.

Fifty percent!

The worst possible thing we humans can do to our health is smoking.


It’s crazy how many patients I see who are diagnosed with cancer and are still smoking.

It’s ludicrous.

I hope you take away just one tiny new habit today.

To help you enjoy a happy and healthy future.

Ideally, the quit date for smoking should be within 2 weeks.

Smoke one less cigarette tomorrow than you smoked today.

Start with one less.

It's so important to start small.

It's all about teeny tiny steps.

It doesn't matter how many times we've had this conversation.

Have it again.

Then again.

It doesn't matter how many times you've set a date to quit smoking.

Set it again.

Then again.

Tell everybody you know you are quitting.

Request support.

Request again.

Then again.

Get your environment in order.

Avoid places you spend a lot of time smoking.

Set a date within 2 weeks, and leading up to this start a new tiny habit.

One less than yesterday.

Talk to your family and friends and get them to try on these tiny habits.

Tell everybody you know.

Friends, family, co-workers, about this quitting and request understanding and support.

You have to make the request.

They'll either honor your request or they won't.

Request anyway.

Request again.

Never stop.

Never smoke again.
