How can I avoid smudging my pencil drawings?

I'm very new at drawing. I'm not very good at pencil types yet, but it seems like whichever pencil I use (I have a set of 12 ranging from 6B to 5H), I end up with smudges. Is there a way to reduce the number of smudges I make? Or should I resign myself to them and just try to not make really awful ones?
