If you are interested in quitting smoking—for good—then we are here to help with our smoking cessation services. We want to support you as you pursue a healthier, smoking-free lifestyle.
Quitting Smoking: Support in New York City
More than two-thirds of smokers say they want to quit, and every year, more than half try. However, without assistance, fewer than 10 percent are successful in the long-term. That’s where we come in. Our QuitSmoking Clinics, located at our public hospitals, provide comprehensive treatment for the tens of thousands of New Yorkers who use tobacco. Quitting smoking is a good idea no matter how old you are or how long you’ve been smoking. People who quit smoking at any age reduce their risk of tobacco-related disease and prolong their lives.
How to Quit Smoking Effectively
Our QuitSmoking Clinics offer you a variety of ways to stop smoking. We understand that each person is different and requires a personalized treatment plan. We work with you to find the treatment that will be most effective for you. Treatment options include:
- Drug therapy
- Nicotine replacement therapy
- Counseling services, customized to each individual
- Case management to help you remain involved in your treatment
