Quit Week

June 15‐21 is Quit Week in North Dakota and it can be the start of something great if you make it your time to quit tobacco! Quitting smoking lowers the risk for many adverse health effects including 12 types of cancer, lung disease, poor reproductive health outcomes, cardiovascular diseases, and COPD. Combining cessation counseling and medication gives a person the best chance of quitting for good. Many people need several tries to successfully quit, but you don’t have to do it alone. Reach out to professionals at CCCHC to get started during #QuitWeek
