Tobacco cessation

Tobacco use – whether it is smoked, chewed or vaped – can lead to serious health problems. Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and the leading cause of cancer. Smoking is also associated with poor outcomes for those with cancer.

Quitting tobacco can be difficult, but the most successful approach is a combination of getting counseling support from those who specialize in tobacco treatment and taking medication.
