The good news is that even if you have smoked before, quitting can stop further damage and even allow your body to heal certain things that have been harmed by cigarettes. If you are ready to quit, don’t think you have to do it alone. There are numerous resources in most communities. And there is no reason today can’t be the day you start improving your health by quitting smoking. The Genesis Tobacco Treatment Program offers tailored treatment plans and goal setting to help you quit successfully.
