Thinking about quitting?
We can help! Join our smoking cessation program.
When you smoke, it affects you in many ways.
Smoking greatly increases your risk of:
cancers - bladder, lung, mouth, tongue, esophagus, larynx [voice box] just to name a few.
heart and circulatory diseases such as hardening of the arteries, heart attack, high blood pressure, and stroke.
lung diseases such as lung cancer, emphysema, bronchitis, colds, and infections.
dental problems such as gum disease and infection which can lead to tooth decay and loss of teeth, oral cancers, and bad breath.
Is your family in danger?
Secondhand smoke exhales from the lung of smokers and the smoke that comes from the burning end of a cigarette, cigar or pipe is very dangerous to the people around you. Second-hand smoke trapped in a car for one hour exposes your family to the equivalent of three cigarettes! Learn more on the consequences of smoking.
