Resolve to quit smoking


To the Editor:

In recognition of New Year's resolutions to quit smoking and spit tobacco, the St. Clair County Smoke-free Team is encouraging people to take steps to make their resolution successful.

According to the American Cancer Society, the benefits of quitting smoking are immediate. Within 20 minutes blood pressure drops and within 24 hours a person's chance of heart attack decreases. The benefits continue for years, including reduced risk of lung cancer, stroke and heart disease.

Contacting a physician for counseling and nicotine replacement medication will increase the chances of quitting tobacco for good. The Michigan Tobacco Quitline offers information and referral for those wishing to quit at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669). Persons may also qualify for free one-on-one coaching and nicotine replacement therapy to help them stay quit for good.

Sincerely,
