    CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Tobacco Prevention Project is greeting the new year with tips for smokers resolving to quit. Here are some of them:

    —Make a list of reasons to quit and carry it with you. Review these reasons when the urge to smoke hits.

    —Set a quit date in advance and make preparations for starting a new, smoke-free life.

    —Remove evidence of cigarettes. Clean out your car, wash your clothes, put away ashtrays and toss out all your cigarettes.

    —Change other habits. Sit in a different chair at the kitchen table, take a new route to work or drink tea instead of coffee.

    —Reward yourself for not smoking. Set short- and long-term goals, and reward yourself for achieving each target.
