Smoking Cessation


Quit Smoking and Stay Smoke Free

Smoking cessation programs are proven to help you quit smoking and offer resources to stay smoke free. Quitting smoking improves your overall health and reduces your risk for heart disease, stroke, cancer, lung disease, and other smoking-related illnesses. Other benefits include healthier looking skin, improved sense of taste, and a better night’s sleep.

If you’re preparing for any surgery, stopping smoking will lower your risk for complications. Smoking decreases blood flow and weakens your immune system, which can cause surgical wounds to not heal properly and increases the chance of infection. 

Don’t Kick the Habit Alone
Virtua offers two smoking cessation program options. Both are run by a tobacco treatment specialist who provides information and tools to help you kick the smoking habit.
