THE CASE FOR QUITTING
Quitting smoking can be extremely challenging, but the benefits are immediate and profound; lung capacity increases, blood pressure drops and the odds of having a heart attack or stroke plunge within the first year. The American Cancer Society provides a timeline of health milestones individuals can look forward to once they’ve quit.
Together with QuitNet we have created a smoking cessation site tailored for nurses and nursing students who want to quit smoking. From this site you can freely access QuitNet's special Nurses section, where you'll find tools and resources you can use to help quit smoking, scientific guides about quitting, expert counselors available to take your questions, and most importantly, other nurses like you who want to quit! Click here to go to our QuitNet entry page and take advantage of your membership sponsored by the Tobacco Free Nurses project.
