Smoking-related diseases claim an estimated 430,700 American lives each year. Smoking costs the United States approximately $97.2 billion each year in health-care costs and lost productivity. It is directly responsible for 87 percent of lung cancer cases and causes most cases of emphysema and chronic bronchitis, according to the American Lung Association.
At Danbury Hospital, we know that quitting is not easy. Cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, snuff, or other substances that contain nicotine can be addictive. Many people who try to quit find that they have become physically and emotionally dependent on them.
Our "Quit Now" approach uses multiple types of behavioral modification, education, and support to help you successfully and permanently break your addiction and take positive steps to create a healthier life.
