Want to Quit? We Can Help!

Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the U.S., yet more than 45 million Americans still smoke cigarettes and use tobacco products. However, more than half of these people have attempted to quit for at least one day in the past year. Quitting tobacco use is hard, but using quit therapies (e.g., the patch) and talking to your doctor doubles your chance of quitting for good!
