The more you are involved with your kids, the easier it is to quit smoking. Your positive involvement is a key factor in their healthy development.
Physical activity and healthy eating are excellent ways to reduce your stress and model healthy habits for your kids. Adding physical activity to a daily routine increases the success of quitting smoking.
It’s much easier to successfully quit smoking with a better understanding of what options are available to support your efforts.
