Smokers this may be the day you decide to quit, or the day you are super annoyed because you have no desire to quit - today is the Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

Full disclosure, I do smoke cigarettes. I am not an everyday smoker. I don't crave a cigarette when I wake up. I don't crave a cigarette with my morning coffee. Do you want to know when I do want a cigarette? After a few cocktails.

Bottom line, I smoke and I should quit. It stinks, it's expensive, it's a pain when it is cold outside. The list goes on and on. Honestly, I don't have the mindset to do so right now. Maybe one day I will, I know that I should.

What about you? If you do smoke, are you over it, but find it hard to stop? There is help between patches and countless tips. The fist tip I read was find your reason to quit and second of all - prepare to go cold turkey. Sounds tough, but millions of people have done it.

Maybe you and I can too? If you have quit, feel free to share your tips, and congrats by the way.
