About Smoking Cessation

The health benefits of quitting smoking begin immediately and are significant over time. Talk with your doctor about a plan that will work for you and prepare ahead of time. Nicotine causes both physical and psychological dependence, which may result in withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, increased appetite and even depression.

Even if you have tried to quit many times in the past, you are twice as likely to be successful if you participate in a two-step program of behavior modification and nicotine replacement therapy. It also helps to get plenty of rest, reduce stress, exercise, drink plenty of water, eat a balanced diet and enlist friends and family for support.
