Smoking Cessation

Quitting smoking is one of the most important things you can do for your health and well-being:
  • You will live longer and live better
  • Quitting will lower your chance of having a heart attack, stroke, or cancer
  • The people you live with, especially your children, will be healthier because they will not be exposed to second-hand smoke
  • If you are pregnant, quitting smoking will improve your chances of having a healthy baby
  • You will have extra money to spend on things other than cigarettes

This page provides you access to information about stopping smoking as well as to organizations that offer free online smoking cessation programs. Our office staff can also help you find a suitable smoking cessation program in your community.
