Smoking Cessation Program
Quitting smoking isn’t easy, but it’s the best thing you can do to improve your health right away. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a smoker — within minutes of your last cigarette, your body begins to repair cells damaged by tar, nicotine and chemicals.
Less than a day after you quit, the level of oxygen in your blood increases, carbon monoxide levels decrease, and your risk of heart attack goes down. The health benefits continue to accumulate over the next few days, weeks and months!
Here in the LiveWell Louisiana Smoking Cessation Program, you’ll find numerous resources to help you quit smoking for good:
• Smoking Cessation Education • Quitlines • Websites • Support Groups
