Smoking Cessation

Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. If you have tried to quit before but failed, or if you are now realizing the need to finally quit, you don’t need to go through the process alone.

New York Cardiovascular Associates’ trained physicians understand the difficulty of quitting smoking. We can give you the support and the tools you need finally stop smoking, for good.

Why Should I Stop Smoking?

Health concerns are the number one reason people want to stop smoking. Indeed, smoking is associated with an increased risk for several serious illnesses. About half of all smokers who continue to smoke will end up dying from a smoking-related illness such as cancer, lung-disease, pneumonia, heart attacks, stroke, or other disease.

By taking control of yourself and your smoking habit, you can dramatically improve your health and extend your life. It is not too late to reverse some of the effects of smoking. We can help you define ways to quit smoking.

Only one year after stopping smoking, the excess risk of coronary heart disease caused by smoking is cut in half. After 15 years of abstinence, the risk is similar to that for people who have never smoked. Also, in 5 to 15 years, the risk of stroke for ex-smokers returns to the level of those who have never smoked. Male smokers who quit between the ages of 35 and 39 add an average of 5 years to their lives. Female quitters in this age group add 3 years. Men and women who quit at ages 65 to 69 increase their life expectancy by 1 year. There are also other immediate benefits of smoking cessation that do not solely deal with your physical health.

Smoking cessation is a major commitment that you take on in order to enhance the length and quality of your life. But you don’t have to do it alone. New York Cardiovascular Associates can give you the help you need to successfully stop smoking and regain control of your health.
