Ending Tobacco Dependence
Tobacco dependence is a chronic, relapsing disorder. Similar to other chronic diseases, it often requires repeated intervention and long-term support. The majority of people who are dependent on tobacco want to quit, but many wind up doing so multiple times before they succeed.

Why Quit Smoking?
There are many good reasons to stop using tobacco. You will immediately benefit your health—and finances! Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. If you stop smoking, you will also benefit family members and other loved ones by eliminating their exposure to secondhand smoke.
Over time, quitting smoking will lower your risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis. The health benefits of quitting will continue to grow the longer you stay tobacco free, adding years to your life. Why wait any longer? Make the commitment now to get on the path to a healthier you.
