Thinking of Quitting? We can help!

Quitting is a journey worth taking.

Quitting doesn't happen overnight. It's a process, a journey, that will lead you down a path to better health. Having a support system will help you be more successful at quitting. Find a friend, family member, or other support person who will hold you to your goals and help you keep moving forward when you take a few steps back. Educate yourself on how living tobacco-free will help you live a longer, healthier life. Set a positive example for your children and grandchildren. And know that you are making a better choice for your health and the health of your family and community.

The Journey of Quitting looks different for everyone.  Watch some of these personal stories:
