The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports more than 16 million Americans are suffering from a disease caused by smoking, and tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death. Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung disease, and diabetes. If you are a smoker, now is the time to quit. Perhaps you tried to quit and couldn’t, or you did quit, but went back to smoking. Don't give up! The nicotine in tobacco is highly addictive and quitting can be hard, especially without help.
