Tiffany had a strong, emotional reason to quit smoking: at age 16, she lost her mother to lung cancer. She knew that certain situations, such as restroom breaks and car trips would present temptations, so she planned her quit strategy carefully. She used nicotine patches, walking, and check-ins with friends. In this video from CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Tiffany talks about how the changes she made helped her successfully quit smoking for good.
