Quitting smoking is a journey — your patients need a plan to curb the urge.

Your recommendation can triple your patients’ chances of quitting smoking.

Smokers who get help from their health care provider or a trained counselor triple their chances of quitting for good. You can encourage your patients to participate in the Delaware Tobacco Prevention and Control Program’s free cessation services, which include counseling by phone or in person, or through QuitSupport.com. Your patients may also qualify for free nicotine-replacement therapy and pharmaceuticals.

What you and Your Patients should know about vaping and e-cigarettes.

Smokers have turned to vaping and e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking. The trend toward e-cigarette use is rising among high school students at an alarming rate. Until recently, there was no federal regulation regarding e-cigarette products and related paraphernalia. Recent studies show that ingredients in e-cigarettes may not be as harmless as initially thought. Help your patients become aware of the potential dangers of e-cigarettes, particularly since there are no ingredient disclosures or youth-access restrictions. A 2014 study confirmed that all e-cigarettes contain nicotine, and a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study from April 2014 documented a dramatic increase in calls to poison centers related to the harmful effects of e-cigarette liquids on small children.
