Quitting smoking can be hard, especially if you’ve been a smoker for years. But it’s an important step you can take to improve your health. The best part is that it’s never too late to quit. When you’re ready to stop smoking, we can help.

Why Quit Smoking?

Quitting smoking is a personal decision, but there are dozens of reasons to stop. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are many health benefits of quitting smoking, including:

  • Improving your health status and enhancing your quality of life
  • Reducing your risk of premature death
  • Reducing your risk of adverse health effects, such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer
  • Protecting loved ones from the health risks of breathing secondhand smoke
