Keep Smoking While Planning To Quit

Chicago, IL -- Planning to quit smoking for the New Year?

Well, keep lighting up until you have your program for quitting planned.

That's the advice of smoking cessation expert Dr. Robin Mermelstein, who says it's better to keep smoking while preparing to quit rather than going cold turkey.

The good doctor admits it sounds counter intuitive but says quitting smoking is stressful and figures smokers will be more successful if they continue to suck on the cancer sticks while getting their medication and their method of quitting in order.

In addition, Dr. Mermelstein says don't succumb to the pressure of having to quit on New Year's Day because it might take a couple of weeks before you're really ready.

In fact, she recommends going on a final smoking fling in tobacco-friendly countries in Europe or Asia so you can, as she puts it, "watch fellow smokers and see how silly they look."
