Resources to Help You Quit

Getting Help

Most people have trouble quitting. Some people quit several times before they stop for good.

If you start smoking, dipping or chewing again, you are not a failure. Remember your reasons for quitting and what helped you quit before. Then, Quit Again!

Each time you quit tobacco products, it will be easier. Don’t give up!

If you have trouble quitting, ask your doctor if other treatments/medicines might be right for you.

Get help if you need it. Ask your doctor for advice. Also, there are many groups that offer written materials, programs and advice to help you quit for good.
