Quit Smoking – We can help!

Posted by UFMC Pueblo in Company News | 0 comments

Did you know, that there are more former smokers in our country than smokers today?

Have you been trying to quit smoking or any other form of tobacco use? We are here to help you become one of those former smokers mentioned.

Quit smoking
We all know by now, the harmful effects that tobacco use can have on the human body. By quitting smoking, you can greatly reduce the risk of cancer or other smoking-related diseases. The question is, how do you quit?

There are several effective treatments to stop smoking. If you have tried quitting, cold turkey and haven’t found success, the following treatments could help:

  • Counseling and behavioral therapies
  • Nicotine replacement products (patches, gum, lozenges)
  • Prescription non-nicotine medications

Both counseling and medication are both effective when trying to quit. Using them together is twice as effective than alone. At University Family Medicine Center, we are here to help. Contact us and make an appointment today to find out how we can help you quit smoking.
