Do Your Body a Favor: Quit Smoking
According to the American Cancer Society, one in five deaths in the United States is directly related to smoking. The good news is among current U.S. smokers, more then 70% of them say they want to quit. If you are a smoker, you know it’s tough to quit. In fact, only five to ten percent of those who try are successful. But here is some motivation. Your body starts seeing results right away before it reaches full recovery.
According to Cancer.org and the U.S. Surgeon General, “Smoking cessation (stopping smoking) represents the single most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.”
Not only will your body be healthier, you will also smell better, your teeth will be whiter, your food will taste better and you will be able to breathe easier.
So attend a counseling service, use a nicotine substitute such as the patch or gum, or take prescription medication and watch your wallet stay heavy with all the money you will save after quitting smoking.
For assistance with quitting, there are many free resources available to citizens of Louisiana by contacting Louisiana's Smoking Cessation help center at:
