Smoking Cessation

Deciding to quit smoking is one of the best choices anyone can make to improve their health. Quitting smoking can add up to eight years to a person's life and the changes can begin immediately:

  • Within 24 hours, the risk of heart attack drops.
  • In two to three weeks, lung function improves and walking is easier.
  • Within one year, risk of heart disease is cut in half.
  • Within five years, the risk of stroke is the same as that of a nonsmoker.

The average smoker tries to quit six times before they successfully stop smoking. With supportive programs and medication, however, the chances of successfully quitting increase from just 5% to 40%. Ashland Integrative Medicine of Ashland KY offers comprehensive stop-smoking services to help make the decision to quit a lasting one.
