Make 2017 the year you quit smoking!

New Year’s resolutions can quickly go up in smoke, but 2017 could be the year to finally stick to your resolution to quick smoking. Help is just a phone call away for all patients of Washington University physicians.

In person, one-on-one smoking or tobacco cessation coaching sessions use  American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking Clinic materials and will get you on your way to enjoying life as a non-smoker, as well as:

  • Lower your risk for lung and other types of cancer
  • Reduce your risk for coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease
  • Reduce respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath
  • Reduce your risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), one of the leading top three causes of death in the United States
  • Reduce the risk of infertility among women during their reproductive years and the chance of having a low birth weight baby

Talk to your Washington University physician about a referral to this life-saving program.
