Why Your Patients Should Quit Smoking

Up to 70% of smokers say they would like to quit smoking. But they often struggle to kick the habit. Research shows that patients who get advice on quitting from a health professional – even just for a few minutes – are 30% more successful in quitting than those who don't.

Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the U.S., causing over 400,000 deaths annually. Quitting can make a dramatic, immediate, and long-lasting difference in your patients' health.

  • Within three hours of their last cigarette, carbon monoxide levels drop to normal.
  • Within two weeks to three months, lung function increases up to 30 percent.
  • At one year, the excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker.
  • At five years, their risk of stroke is greatly reduced.
