If you smoke, now is a good time to quit, for yourself and for the ones nearest to you. Smoking can cause problems and diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
With the proper support and information, you can quit. Some people quit cold turkey (all at once). Others do it by slowly cutting back on cigarettes. Many people have found success with quitting when they seek help. Talk to your doctor about quitting and medicines that can help. You can also get phone support by calling the California Smokers’ Helpline.
