Smoking Cessation Resources
Lung cancer screening is not meant to replace quitting smoking. Whether or not you decide to be screened, quitting smoking is the most important thing you can do to lower your risk of lung cancer and other tobacco-related illnesses. If you have already quit, staying a non-smoker will continue to lower your risk of lung cancer year after year.
Becoming a non-smoker is not easy and is not a single event. It is a process that can take time and a lot of effort, but with the right tools and support you can do it! The resources below can help you become a non-smoker and if you have already quit, help you stay a non-smoker.
