Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death, killing 443,000 Americans and 6,500 Louisianans each year. But tobacco doesn’t just kill. It leads to many chronic diseases and conditions such as cancer, heart disease, stroke and lung disease that cause long-term suffering. Tobacco is highly addictive, and the chemicals added to tobacco products make it easy to get hooked quickly.

The decision to quit is important to your health and quality of life. So forget all the excuses you’ve been telling yourself (fear of weight gain, cost, friends who smoke). It’s never too late to quit, and the health benefits of quitting are immediate.

We understand quitting is not easy, and it requires effort and a strong commitment. But you can quit, and we’re here to help and support you through the process.
