A successful quit is built around keeping the quit as #1 priority. As part of preparing for your quit-date, you may want to get some support from your family and close friends. Think about the ways that they can be helpful to you, and then communicate those ways to them. For example, will you want to be asked about how your quit-attempt is going, or would you like to be left alone unless you bring it up? Also, if you discuss with them, before your quit-date, the fact that you might be a bit hard to live with for a while, they’ll be less likely to take your irritable behavior personally. They're more likely to respond favorably if they understand how much of a priority your quit is for you.
