Did you know that yearly, one of every five deaths in the United States is caused by smoking? According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, over 16 million Americans have a chronic disease caused by smoking. If you have been smoking most of your life, there is still time to quit. Quitting smoking at any age improves your health, self-esteem, and adds years of life. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death, and it costs Americans more than $300 billion a year. That is expensive! Quitting is hard, but with support and the right team, anything is possible. If you or a loved one would like to quit smoking, Advent Health in Palm Coast is hosting the Free Quit Tobacco Your Way program on January 23 – February 27, 2020. Individuals will be meeting once a week for six weeks for one-hour sessions from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.
