HELPFUL RESOURCES FOR SMOKING CESSATION

You Can Quit Smoking

Nicotine is a powerful addiction - if you have tried to quit smoking, you know how hard it can be. For some people, nicotine can be as addictive as heroin or cocaine. Usually people make 2 or 3 tries or more before finally being able to quit.  Each time you try to quit you can learn about what helps and what hurts.


Quitting takes hard work and a lot of effort, but you can quit smoking.
