Quit smoking with someone you love.

Quit smoking with someone you love

Valentine’s Day is this week and it has many couples looking for the most romantic ways to show their loved ones how important and appreciated they are.  If you’ve been quitting smoking and have a devoted significant other, consider asking them to become your quit buddy this Monday.  It’s not only easier to quit with a partner, but it’s a great way to show your partner how much you value their support!
