    Tobacco Treatment Specialist Eletta Hansen discusses changing your identity as a smoker.

    Host: How do I change my identity as a smoker?

    Eletta Hansen: You did not become a smoker overnight and you will not become a non smoker overnight. A lot of people who quit smoking will often tell their friends and family, I am thinking of quitting or I am trying to quit rather than saying I have quit, this may work for you, this may make it an easier transition as you began to develop a non smoking life style.
