The VCPH “Call It Quits” program includes group and one-on-one counseling, free tobacco replacement therapy products and advice on how to recognize nicotine triggers, manage cravings, minimize withdrawal symptoms and stick with the program.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., accounting for more than 440,000 deaths each year.  There are numerous health benefits associated with quitting smoking including lowering the risk of lung cancer, lowering the risks for heart disease and stroke and reducing respiratory symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

To enroll in a VCPH tobacco cessation class, call the “Call It Quits” Helpline at: (805) 201-STOP (7867) or, for more information, visit www.vchca.org/public-health/tobacco.
