I have tried to quit smoking many times before but I just can't do it. One time I wouldn't touch a cigarette for two straight weeks but after that, I just went back to smoking.
How can I quit smoking once and for all?

Many people don't quit smoking because they think it's too hard to do. They think they'll quit someday.
It's true, for most people quitting isn't easy. After all, the nicotine in cigarettes is a powerfully addictive drug. But with the right approach, you can overcome the cravings.
But don't be discouraged; millions of Americans have permanently quit smoking.
People whose friends and family help them quit are much more likely to succeed. If you don't want to tell your parents or family that you smoke, make sure your friends know, and consider confiding in a counselor or other adult you trust. And if you're having a hard time finding people to support you (if, say, all your friends smoke and none of them is interested in quitting), you might consider joining a support group, either in person or online.
