hi!
what's the difference between quit and give up? Both verbs have the meaning of stop doing something.
So in this case would be possible to use give up?

You are right: both verbs quit and give up mean to stop doing something (quit being informal).

Therefore, you can also give up smoking.

The term 'leave' simply isn't used in that way.
