Quitting smoking and tobacco lowers a person’s risk of heart attack, heart failure, lung cancer, diabetes and asthma – and former smokers who kick the habit for at least 10 years have almost the same life expectancy as those who have never smoked.

To give people the expert support they need to stop using tobacco and stay tobacco-free, we offer a free, evidence-based community program teaching coping strategies and other techniques, such as behavior changes and mindfulness, to slowly reduce nicotine intake.
