Smoking Cessation

Helping smokers quit not only saves lives - it also increases workplace productivity and lowers healthcare costs.

Quitting Matters

Evidence-based research shows that a combination of counseling and medication is most effective for treating tobacco dependence. There are immediate and long-term health benefits of quitting for smokers, their loved ones, and their employers.

  • After one year of not smoking, the risk of coronary heart disease drops to about half that of a smoker1

  • Quitting decreases excess risk of diseases associated with secondhand smoke in children2

  • Employees who quit smoking demonstrate lower absenteeism, presenteeism, and activity impairment3

There's No One Way to Quit

There’s a reason quitting is hard – cigarettes with nicotine are some of the most addictive substances known to man. When you’re ready to quit (and I’ve never met a smoker who doesn’t want to quit at some point in their life) it’s great to know there’s help that works.
