Use stop smoking tools: The NHS offers resources and support to smokers to help them quit smoking. Some aids include chewing gums, advice, nasal spray and nicotine patches that help them stop smoking. 

Inform family and friends: keep your family and friends informed about plans to stop smoking. This will make them aware of your goal, and they may support you. In addition, you could get someone who is also looking to quit so that you join forces to stop. 

Follow Stoptober: you can follow Stoptober on Facebook; this community will help you in your journey. In addition, people share their experiences and struggles in the quitting journey, which can be encouraging and motivate you to stick to your goals.
