You are more than a label

You are not a "smoker"

Do you smoke cigarettes?

Whatever you do, stop calling yourself a "smoker." The activity of smoking doesn't define who you are. "Smoker" is a label and you're more than that.

If you're trying to quit, "wearing" the label of smoker can get in the way of how you see yourself. The way you think about yourself is part of changing triggers that make you fall back into the habit.

If the first step to quitting is making the decision to do it, picture yourself free of cigarettes. And give yourself a new label to fit your new choices.
