Correct

- Set a formal date to quit smoking

- Choose something to eat instead of smoking

- Each year, give yourself a reward for staying tobacco free

- If a relapse occurs, you did something that couldn't overcome the desire to smoke

Rationale

Health and wellness promotion are common topics of nursing education and many nurses must give information to patients who desire to improve their lives by making healthy decisions. If the nurse is working with a patient who is trying to quit smoking, she can dedicate some teaching to strategies that can best help the smoker to quit, such as by setting a date to quit and then sticking with it, providing rewards after staying tobacco free for short periods, or understanding that relapses are common.
