Smoking Cessation

The prospect of doing without tobacco and going through nicotine withdrawal is certainly one of the most difficult changes that a person can make. That’s because nicotine is as, if not more, addicting than cocaine or heroin! The impact that tobacco addiction has on individuals and our society are staggering:
  Each year cigarettes kill more Americans than AIDS, alcohol, car accidents, fires, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined    
  Smoking-related diseases claim the lives of 443,000 Americans every year    
  Each year, mainly due to secondhand smoke, an estimated:    
    3,000 nonsmoking Americans die of lung cancer    
    150,000 - 300,00 children younger than 18 months have lower respiratory tract infections
