Stop Smoking

Nearly everyone who smokes already knows it's bad for their health but that doesn’t make it any easier to stop. Tobacco is addictive. Some clinicians believe that tobacco is as hard to quit as alcohol, cocaine, or heroin.

Don’t be discouraged if you have tried to quit smoking in the past and been unsuccessful. Most former smokers have to try quitting several times before they finally succeed. Perseverance pays off.

Make this the year that gives you new life! Start your plan to quit smoking today! Believe it or not, your body will be healthier by tomorrow!
