Tobacco Cessation

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., accounting for approximately 443,000 deaths, or 1 of every 5 deaths, each year. The good news is, the benefits kick in as soon as you kick the habit – you have more energy, food tastes better, and your lungs begin to heal. And, your wallet will be healthier, too – the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is $5.67. For a person that smokes a pack a day, that adds up to nearly $40 per week, $2,071 per year, and $20,710 over the course of 10 years! You can use that money to take a vacation, buy a car, contribute to your child’s college fund, make home renovations – the possibilities are endless!

If you need more motivation, think about your friends and family – secondhand smoke is estimated to cause close to 50,000 deaths each year. Plus, nonsmokers have longer lifespans, giving you more time with your loved ones.
