Given the choice, most addicts (I would say at least 90 percent) do not wish to try to quit smoking during early recovery. I see continuous evidence of this at a treatment center, where almost everyone states that they do not want to try to quit smoking right now,. Some statistics state that if you force addicts entering treatment to give up smoking, it improves outcomes all around.1. At First Give Choice to Quit or Not

About half of those in long term sobriety seem to choose to try and quit at some point. It is a direct result of making personal growth in recovery.If you are trying to be the best person you can, and to serve others, then you can do that better through good health and so on. So there is more motivation to quit smoking the longer the addict stays clean and sober. Eventually, they realize that they are still using a drug (Nicotine) to self medicate with, and that they would be better off without it.2. Try to Quit After Some Time

3. Overcome AddictionOvercoming an addiction to nicotine is part of an holistic approach to recovery. If you are really trying to make strong personal growth, then you have to consider the whole person when it comes to recovery. This includes things like physical fitness, nutrition, and so on. Quitting smoking is a natural part of this, in the sense that you want to be as healthy as possible in order to be living your best life.
