Questions and Answers About Quitting Tobacco
Quitting at any age is the best thing you can do for your health. On average, smokers die younger than non-smokers. When quitting gets tough, think about the extra time you could have to enjoy because you chose to quit, spending time with family and friends, going to parties, attending holiday gatherings, and making good memories.
Smoking is an addiction, and quitting on your own is hard. Every year, seven out of 10 cigarette smokers try to quit, but fewer than one in 10 succeeds. Advice and encouragement from your health care provider is proven to help you quit for good. In fact, when your health care provider assists you with support and medication, you can double or even triple your chances of quitting.
