Thinking of Quitting? We Can Help!
Worried about smoking/vaping and COVID-19?
The Colorado QuitLine provides some answers and offers free resources to help you identify healthy coping skills to use instead of smoking or vaping.
Quitting Is A Journey Worth Taking
Quitting doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process, a journey, that will lead you down a path to better health. Having a support system will help you be more successful at quitting. Find a friend, family member, or other support person who will hold you to your goals and help you keep moving forward when you take a few steps back. Educate yourself on how living tobacco-free will help you live a longer, healthier life. Set a positive example for your children and grandchildren. And know that you are making a better choice for your health and the health of your family and community.
