Many Americans are choosing to use alternative tobacco products to assist them to quit smoking, it is important to note that many of these products, such as e-cigarettes, have not been approved by the FDA as smoking cessation tools. E-cigarettes also contain toxins and cancer-causing chemicals themselves.
While not every smoker has the same reason for wanting to quit smoking, there are positive changes waiting for you no matter your reasons for quitting. Now is a great time to start your journey to a Tobacco Free 2018!
