Internal Medicine
Absolutely.  If you commit to it by telling others, they will help you and not sabotage you.  That is actually a key thing.  If someone offers you a cigarette while you are quitting, remember they are a saboteur and not a real friend.  Talk to others about helping you quit smoking.  That is, ask them, or enroll them in the same method of smoking cessation as you are going to, especially if they smoke.  That way all of you can, in fact, get the benefits of smoking cessation and can support each other.
