Tobacco cessation, or the act of quitting any tobacco use, usually requires a provider’s expertise in order to effectively stop the habit. This is because nicotine, the substance in tobacco products, is highly addictive and requires the help of a provider to quit via clinical intervention.

Health Benefits of Quitting Tobacco
Quitting smoking, smokeless tobacco (Chewing tobacco), and/or e-cigarette use can significantly improve a patient’s overall health. Tobacco use is one of the leading causes of chronic disease, including cardiovascular conditions and cancer, in the United States. Reducing tobacco use can also help with focus, managing emotions, and reducing the use of other drugs like alcohol. Reducing tobacco use can lead to lower risks for lung cancer, heart disease, shortness of breath, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), and stroke, along with other debilitating health conditions.
