HEALTH TIP OF THE WEEK
Quit smoking: Lining up support
The more support you have, the more likely you are to stop smoking. Many hospitals and clinics offer quit-smoking support groups or classes. You can also join online quit-smoking groups or programs. Or connect with a tobacco treatment specialist through your doctor, a local treatment program or a telephone-based program. Toll-free tobacco quit lines are available in every U.S. state and in many countries throughout the world. One big benefit of telephone quit lines is that you can participate from your own home. You can even text smoking cessation counselors through Smokefree.gov.
