If you are planning to use NRT or prescription medications, make sure you’ve got them for quit day. Remember that prescription meds like Varenicline (Champix®) or Bupropion SR (Zyban®) should be started two weeks before your quit date.
Gather supplies you’ll need to support your quit. Stock up on healthy snacks and keep some at work and in your car. Buy things to chew on like cinnamon sticks, sunflower seeds, sugarless candy, celery and carrot sticks. Get something to keep your hands busy too, like a squeeze ball or Rubik’s cube. And don’t forget to have lots of water on hand.
