Smoking Cessation

Smoking cessation lowers the risk of cancer and other serious health problems. People who want to quit smoking can use counseling, behavior therapy, medicines, and nicotine-containing products, such as patches, gum, lozenges, inhalers, and nasal sprays.

Worst Diseases Caused by Smoking

  1. Lung Cancer. More people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor for lung cancer; it’s responsible for close to 90% of lung cancer cases.
  2. Asthma. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that makes it harder to move air in and out of your lungs. Nearly 25 million Americans suffer from this serious health condition. Smoking only makes it worse.
  3. Reproductive effects in women. In women, smoking can cause ectopic pregnancy, which occurs when a fertilized egg implants somewhere other than the uterus.  Smoking while pregnant can cause babies to be born prematurely and/or with low birth weight.
  4. Over 10 other types of cancer. The risk of developing second primary cancer increases for cancer patients and survivors who smoke. At least a dozen cancers, including liver and colorectal, and prostate cancer, are caused by smoking.
  5. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is an obstructive lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. It causes serious long-term disability and early death. The fourth leading cause of death in the United States is COPD, which is caused by cigarette smoking in 85% to 90% of cases.
  6. Heart disease and stroke. Smoking can cause blockages and narrow your arteries, which means less blood and oxygen flow to your heart. Because smoking affects your arteries, it can trigger stroke. It can cause paralysis, slurred speech, altered brain function, and death.
