Trying to quit smoking can be tough. Trying to quit alone can make it even harder. A recent CDC campaign – ‘Tips from Former Smokers’ - featured graphic testimonials from people living with smoking-related diseases. The campaign was intended to motivate adult smokers to quit. It provided information about the devastating health damage caused by smoking and led to a dramatic increase in calls to 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
One of the most important things you can do for your health is to quit smoking. If you’re a smoker or know someone who smokes, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visit smoke-free-dot-gov.
