Thinking About Quitting

If you are thinking about quitting smoking, vaping, or chew, you are not alone. Almost 70% of smokers want to quit, acknowledging the health benefits, cost savings, and improved lifestyle that will follow. But, nicotine 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 tobacco or vaping, 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!

Download our Thinking About Quitting Booklet for exercises and information that can provide support for being tobacco-free.
