I’m Afraid of how my Entourage Will React

It’s normal to fear the reaction of one’s entourage, especially if you have a lot of friends or colleagues who smoke. However if these people care about you, why fear their reactions? Shouldn’t they be happy for you, and encouraging and supporting you instead?

Every year in Quebec, 60% of smokers try and quit smoking in the first six months. That’s around 870 000 people! So there’s a pretty good chance that several smokers in your entourage will want to quit smoking in the near future.

Use the opportunity to invite those closest to you to follow the THAT’S IT, I QUIT! method.
