 Announce to Everyone That You Have Quit Smoking
Telling your family and friends that you have given up smoking helps in keeping a safe distance away from the cigarette butts, a new study has revealed.

The study, conducted by research firm Stollznow, revealed that making your intentions of quitting smoking public will cut down the temptation of turning for a short puff even when under stress.

The researchers question 1424 Australians regarding their smoking habits and found that more than 65 percent of the smokers admitted that confiding their intentions of giving up smoking helps them from falling into the habit once again.

"Being public with a quit attempt, particularly with those closest to you like family and friends, can help address this", said Professor Matthew Peters, who is chairman of Action on Smoking and Health Australia.

Peters also suggested that people should deliberately visit places where smoking is banned since they will have no other option than to stay away from smoking
