Smoking cessation is the process to quit smoking a tobacco product. Due to the addictive properties of products such as tobacco, that contain nicotine, quitting can be difficult to do.
Tobacco use is estimated to cause over 6 million deaths every year, making it the lead preventable cause of death. Smoking is harmful to your body in many ways. Smoking greatly increases the chance of getting heart disease, lung disease, and cancer. Smoking also increases the chance of having a heart attack, a stroke, or clogged arteries.
