Mark Twain once said, "Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a thousand times."
Quitting tobacco is difficult because all forms of it, cigarettes, cigars and spit (chewing) tobacco, contain nicotine and nicotine is the agent in tobacco that's capable of causing addiction or dependence
Tobacco Cessation programs and products have taken the country by storm.
Changes are occurring all around us.
Restaurants in NC have banned smoking, sporting events that occur on state property are now smoke free, and the NC State Health Plan has instituted new regulations beginning July 1, 2010 that tobacco users will be assigned a different benefit bracket.

Get the facts on smoking.
Get the facts on smokeless tobacco.
Starting is easy, quitting is hard.
So, HOW do you start?
Or, if you're like Mark Twain and you’ve quit successfully before but slipped back, how can you quit for good this time?
Unfortunately, there's no 'magic bullet' or one way that works for everyone.
A good way to start, though, is to get as much information as you can, and decide on a plan that's right for you.
