(OPEN):
QUITTING SMOKING REMAINS ONE OF THE MOST-POPULAR NEW-YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS.  AND, FOR NEARLY 20 YEARS, "QUIT-PLAN SERVICES" HAS PROVIDED FREE SUPPORT, TO ALL MINNESOTANS WHO WANT TO QUIT.  MIKE SHELDON, OF "CLEAR-WAY MINNESOTA"--WHICH OPERATES THE PROGRAM--OFFERS THESE TIPS...

(SHELDON):
"
THOSE WHO MAKE A PLAN ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUCCEED.  AND, MOST OF THEM USE A 'QUIT MEDICATION'--LIKE PATCHES OR GUM--TO REDUCE NICOTINE-WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS.  MAKING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY A DAILY HABIT STIMULATES THE BRAIN--WHICH CAN HELP YOU FIGHT CRAVINGS, AVOID SETBACKS, AND FEEL BETTER.  WHAT'S MORE, YOU SHOULDN'T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP--WHETHER IT'S FROM A FAMILY-MEMBER, A FRIEND, A CO-WORKER, OR A PROFESSIONAL PHONE-COACH.  FINALLY, TRY TO SURROUND YOURSELF WITH A TOBACCO-FREE ENVIRONMENT--TO GET RID OF THE TEMPTATION TO USE IT:  CLEAR YOUR HEAD AND SURROUNDINGS OF TOBACCO, START THINKING LIKE A NONSMOKER, AND GET ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT QUITTING."
