Why Quit?

When you use tobacco, there are compelling reasons for you to quit. The rewards of quitting can be tremendous, and can begin immediately. Millions of Americans experience health problems caused by smoking. Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and diminishes overall health. It causes heart disease, stroke, lung diseases like chronic bronchitis and emphysema, osteoporosis, and cataracts. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Quitting tobacco will improve your health, your finances, your self-esteem and your everyday life immediately and over the long term in ways you may never have imagined. Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. Every year in the U.S. over 392,000 people die from tobacco-caused disease, making it the leading cause of preventable death. Another 50,000 people die from exposure to secondhand smoke. Tragically, each day thousands of kids still pick up a cigarette for the first time.
