Smoking Cessation

One of the BEST things that you can do to decrease your risks for high blood pressure, allergies, impotence (inability to get an erection), ulcers, heart attacks, stroke, and lung cancer, as well as other cancers, is to STOP smoking.

It is sometimes hard to stop smoking on your own. There are many ways to increase your success. You can decrease your cravings for cigarettes by using gum or the nicotine patch. There also are some types of pills that can help.

If you have any questions about how to get support to stop smoking cigarettes, please speak to your doctor or come and speak with a doctor at the Young Men's Clinic. In New York City, you can also call 311.
