Despite the reduction in tobacco usage, smoking related illnesses are still implicated in one in five deaths in the United States. Tobacco use of all kinds increases the risk of chronic disease, complications, and mortality. Although nicotine is highly addictive, and quitting is challenging, it is possible.
The average number of attempts it takes to quit smoking is nine. By facilitating social support, and encouraging tobacco users to share challenges and successes, the chance of success can be greatly improved.
