If you are thinking about quitting, you are not alone. Almost 70% of smokers want to quit, acknowledging the health benefits, cost savings, and improved lifestyle that will follow. But, tobacco dependence is a very real, complex condition that affects both the mental and physical parts of the body. Research shows that nicotine is just as addictive as heroin or cocaine.
It can take several attempts, but when you are ready to quit, there are resources and support available that will help you to quit for good. Just remember, there are more former smokers than current smokers. If they can do it, you can do it!
