If My Partner and I Both Smoke Should We Both Quit at the Same Time?

Answer: Yes. In one study, The couples that quit at the same time were far more likely to succeed. 48% of men quit smoking if their partners quit as well, compared to only 8% who quit when they had to go it alone. Similarly, 50% of women succeeded if they quit with their partner, versus only 8% who were able to do so when going solo. The authors concluded, β€œMen and women are more likely to make a positive health behavior change if their partner does too.”
