( - WASHINGTON, D.C., (December 27, 2013) - One of the most common New Year's resolutions is to quit smoking.  Quitting for good is hard, but here are five quick tips to help on the road to a healthier smokefree life:

  1. Learn from past experiences. Quitting can take several tries. Don't get discouraged. Learn from past attempts and treat them as stepping stones to success.
  2. You don't have to quit alone. Enlist the support of friends and family and expert help is available from the American Lung Association and other groups. Find a friend who wants to quit and do it together.
  3. Medication can help, if you know what to do. FDA-approved medications like nicotine patches or gum really do help. Talk to your doctor and follow the directions.
  4. It's never too late to quit. Quitting smoking at any age will enhance the length and quality of your life.
  5. Every smoker can quit. You can do it! Each person needs to find what works for them, and above all, keep trying!

Make 2014 the year you begin a new, smokefree life! The American Lung Association has more tools and tips to help smokers quit:
