Quitting Smoking

Quitting smoking is the best thing you can do to improve your life and health. Any attempt to quit smoking will make you stronger. It's never too late to reap the benefits, some of which happen within the first few days. With the right combination of practice, determination and support, you will be able to stop smoking for good!



World No Tobacco Day is May 31 - will this be the day you finally give up cigarettes for good? There are a number of no-cost options for people looking to quit smoking, including the Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) program, which provides free counselling, medication, nicotine patches, gum and inhalers to people in Ontario.
