Whether we're trying to lose weight, get more exercise or quit smoking, Monday is the day that we usually choose to set those plans in motion.

Part of the Monday Campaigns, Quit and Stay Quit Monday℠ puts focus on using Monday to check in on our progress with cessation or recommit to quitting tobacco if we've relapsed.
