Smoking Cessation

What is a Smoking Cessation Program?

This a program specifically designed to help smokers “quit the habit”.

Why should I stop smoking?

According to the latest statistics, smoking-related illnesses cause over 430,000 American deaths each year. This includes the smoker, as well as those affected by secondhand smoke. Smoking is directly related to or causes 90% of all lung cancers. Some other illnesses smoking is linked to include pneumonia, COPD, strokes, and infertility, among other things. Children can also be greatly affected by secondhand smoke, contributing to increased ear infections, colds, breathing problems, such as asthma, and may even contribute to SIDS.

How do I become smoke-free?

You should consult your insurance plan to see what smoking cessation programs or medications are covered under your plan. There are several avenues in which our doctors can follow to aid you in quitting smoking. The most popular way is with medication. There are numerous medications on the market designed for this reason. They range from pills to patches to gum. Some other ways you may try include hypnosis, acupuncture, or acupressure. Some patients do nothing and go “cold turkey”. Please consult your doctor to decide what is the best way for you to quit smoking.

Living a smoke-free life equals a happier, healthier life for you and your loved ones!
