You’ll thank you for quitting tobacco in the New Year

As people around the world make resolutions for 2024, Lorain County Public Health (LCPH) enthusiastically supports people in Lorain County resolving to quit tobacco and all other types of nicotine.

Quitting nicotine is worth it in every way -- ways that you’ll notice and appreciate almost immediately and far into the future. The benefits to quitting smoking or vaping are life changing: 

  • Instantly lower your risk of heart attack
  • Save money and time
  • Be able to breathe better
  • Live a longer fuller life
  • Lower your stress and anxiety
  • Improve your mood
  • Enjoy more quality time with friends and family

Quitting smoking or vaping helps you take back control of your life, and it’s okay if it takes a few tries. LCPH encourages adults trying to quit nicotine to call the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW. The Quit Line’s caring coaches understand where you are and can help you make a plan to finally quit smoking or vaping that works for you and your goals. The Quit Line provides free online, text and phone support, and even up to six weeks of free nicotine replacement therapy for Ohioans.
