Using Social Media to Stay Smoke Free
Studies show that women have a much easier time quitting smoking when they have plenty of social support. Unfortunately, work, child care, and other obligations can make it difficult to seek help.
This video discusses the National Cancer Institute’s Facebook support group for women trying to quit smoking. During times of weakness, women can go online and find all kinds of support in the form of discussions, videos, and encouraging messages. Since this all happens online, women don’t need to worry about organizing child care or transportation to find support.
