If you smoke or use tobacco products, you probably know that smoking is the #1 most preventable cause of death in the United States. And quitting—no matter your age, how long you’ve smoked, or what health problems you may have—is the #1 most important step you can take to live a longer and healthier life. Additionally, quitting tobacco use is one of the best changes you can make to protect your brain health as you age.
You probably also know that quitting is hard. In fact, studies show that most smokers want to quit. And many try one or more times without success. But studies also show that quitting with the support of counseling and medicine can double—or even triple—your chances of success. And that’s where we can help.

“I had tried to quit many times; I think I actually lost track of how many times. It’s been over a year [since I stopped], but the interesting thing is I can’t really imagine going back to smoking now. As far as I’m concerned, I’m done smoking.”
