Have you been thinking about quitting smoking? Maybe you’ve already made the decision to quit. Perhaps you’re not a smoker, but have friends or co-workers who’ve contemplated quitting.

There’s no better time than today! Studies show that individuals who quit smoking early in life can decrease risk of developing smoking-related diseases by up to 90%.

Whatever stage you are at, there are resources available to help. Many health insurance companies now provide tobacco cessation programs for their clients. Individuals can also contact the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW. Lewis & Clark also offers some resources to students and staff who want to stop smoking.

For Employees
  • Contact your insurance provider for details about coverage for smoking cessation.
  • Access counseling and wellness coaching through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
  • Contact the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW. 
For Students
  • Contact the Office of Health Promotion and Wellness (healthed@lclark.edu) for guidance about best strategies for cessation, including referrals to the Student Health Service or Counseling Service.
  • Research options through your health insurance provider. Many health insurance plans cover at least some tobacco cessation services.
