Smoking Cessation Resources
Cigarette smoking is a difficult habit to break – just ask the one in five Georgians who smoke cigarettes. Seventy percent of those smokers say they want to quit but only six percent of smokers who say they’ve tried to quit in the last year were successful.
The good news is, studies show that smokers who get support have a greater chance of quitting smoking. Take advantage of some of Piedmont’s support services and view a list of classes and support groups that we offer.
