The benefits of quitting are big –

No matter how long you have smoked, quitting makes a difference. Learning about the benefits of quitting smoking and finding your reasons to quit can help motivate you to stop for good.

Quit attempts – do they build or break your confidence?

Chances are you tried to quit before. Try not to let the past prevent you from your next quit attempt.

Instead, give yourself credit for your past quit attempts. For most people who smoke, it takes several tries. Think of these as practice quits and a way to learn what works and what doesn't work for you.

Clearing the air about nicotine

Nicotine does not cause chronic diseases, like cancer or heart disease, poisons in cigarettes do. This damage occurs when you inhale cigarette smoke. Smokeless tobacco, such as chew, also contains dangerous, cancer-causing chemicals.

Nicotine is what keeps you smoking. This makes quitting hard but there are proven ways to help!
