Quitting Smoking Is An Option

A commonly used phrase on Internet quit sites is "Smoking is not an option." This video refers to resources we have set up to explain that the phrase is not true, that smoking is always an option. What is true though and even more important is that "Quitting smoking is an option," and staying off is an option too, options that are doable by all people who make and stick to a personal commitment to never take another puff.
