Quitting smoking is one of the most important steps you can take to improve your health. This is true no matter how old you are or how long you have smoked. Many people who smoke become addicted to nicotine, a drug that is found naturally in tobacco. This can make it hard to quit smoking. But the good news is there are proven treatments that can help you quit.
Here in Summit County there are a variety of FREE resources that people can use. There are free quit smoking group classes, individual sessions, a Nicotine Anonymous group, and the Ohio Tobacco Quitline. In addition, medical providers and community partners are offered free cessation trainings to assist when talking to patients/clients about their tobacco use.
