Take Advantage of Resources
You know that tobacco is bad for you. So, why not quit today? It’s hurting your health, draining your wallet and leaving you behind in a world that’s becoming tobacco-free. To avoid facing an added premium cost of $50 per month we encourage you to take steps now to quit using tobacco products.
If you’re thinking about flushing all your cigarettes down the toilet and never lighting up again; Congratulations! Your desire to quit is the first step. However, because smoking / tobacco use involves a chemical addiction to the drug nicotine, sheer willpower may not be all you need to succeed. When you’re ready, set a date to quit. And, stick to it. Don’t let tobacco control you for one more day. Take charge of your habit and your health! It doesn’t matter how long or how much you’ve smoked. Your health will begin to improve within hours of quitting.
In an effort to help you quit and save the School District in conjunction with community partners will offer tobacco cessation resources.
