Advertising Anyone planning to add quit smoking or quit smokeless tobacco to a 2010 New Years resolution list should start planning now if he or she wants to be tobacco free on Jan. 1, according to the American Cancer Society and Free & Clear. No one ever said quitting smoking was easy, but that doesnt mean its impossible. There is no time like the start of a new year to give it a try. Here are several ways to make it a little bit easier on yourself. Set a quit day. Select a date to stop smoking that is far enough in the future to make plans, but close enough that your quit date is near, said Kellie Lamb, Director of Pearl River and Hancock County MS Tobacco Free Coalition. New Years Day is a perfect quit day. Think proactively. Assess your living space for safety; reduce your risk for falls and injuries. Dont let the fear of loss of independence cloud your judgment in terms of installing safety devices in the shower or the bathroom. Hold on to the handrail when walking up and down stairs. Decrease clutter and remove cords and other items to reduce your risk of a fall. Be sure your smoke detectors are working properly. Always wear a seat belt and drive defensively. Avoid icy walkways. Protect yourself from infections. It is important to receive the H1N1 vaccine and influenza vaccine. Avoid individuals who are ill, and if you are ill protect others by not exposing them.
