Have you been thinking about quitting tobacco use? Maybe you’ve already made the decision to quit. Perhaps you don’t use, 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.  Lewis & Clark also offers some resources to students and staff who want to stop using tobacco.
