Smoking Does More than Cause Lung Cancer

Monday, October 31, 2022


We all know smoking causes lung cancer and that alone should be enough to encourage you to not start or quit smoking. However, do you know how else smoking impacts your health? 


The good news is that even if you have smoked before, quitting can stop further damage and even allow your body to heal certain things that have been harmed by cigarettes. If you are ready to quit, don’t think you have to do it alone. There are numerous resources in most communities. And there is no reason today can’t be the day you start improving your health by quitting smoking. The Genesis Tobacco Treatment Program offers tailored treatment plans and goal setting to help you quit successfully.
