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 6% 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.
