• Smoking is the single most preventable cause of disease and death in the United States.  It’s scary but true: Tobacco is the only consumer product known to kill half of its users. Don’t you be one of them!
  • But there’s good news too. The health benefits of stopping smoking are immediate and long-lasting. And it’s never too late to quit – for your health and the health of the people you love.
  • Smoking causes almost one-third of all cancer deaths and one-fifth of deaths from heart disease and stroke. Smoking complicates diabetes, and recent studies now link tobacco use to an increased risk of developing the disease.
  • If you’re a smoker, ask your doctor for help with quitting, and contact us for resources that can double your chances of success.
  • Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do, but you'll be glad you did.
