Quit Smoking


Asian Woman breaking a cigarette The chemicals in tobacco smoke harm your heart and blood vessels in many ways. Talk to your doctor if you vape. There is scientific evidence that flavorings found in vaping products can damage your heart and lungs.

Quitting is hard, but many people have succeeded, and you can too.

Ask your family and friends for support in your effort.

  • Set a quit date and let those close to you know about it.
  • To keep your hands busy and be with others when you get urges to smoke, consider joining a group that focuses on sewing, knitting, woodworking, or other such activities.
  • If you have trouble quitting smoking on your own, consider joining a support group. Many hospitals, workplaces, and community groups offer classes to help people quit smoking.
