are you doing about your smoking habit?
It’s no secret that quitting smoking is one of the best things you can
do for your health. The moment you stop, your body begins to repair the
damage caused by cigarette smoking.
Thinking About It
Start by making a list of the reasons you want to quit: to improve your health
and the health of those around you, to save money, to feel better. Post the list
where you can see it.
Worried About It
Quitting isn’t easy. Some people worry about weight gain or withdrawal symptoms.
Talk to your doctor about medications or support programs.
Smokers are at greater risk for coronary heart disease, lung problems and
various cancers. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, cigarette
smoking is to blame
for more than 440,000 of the more than 2.4 million annual deaths in the U.S.
