VAMC Manchester : Try quitting smoking today
Each year on the third Thursday in November is the Great American Smokeout, a day initiated by the American Cancer Society to encourage smokers to quit for a day in hopes they may quit for a lifetime.
On Thursday, Nov. 21, from 8 to 11 a.m. in the training and education Room, the VAMC Manchester will have health care staff available to provide information on quitting tobacco, nicotine replacement therapy information, and VA resources for veterans and staff.
The center is sponsoring a "take back" day where veterans and staff can turn in tobacco items, and sign a pledge. Tobacco cessation displays will also be available.
And now more than ever, there are numerous effective treatment options to help support any tobacco user in his or her attempt to quit using tobacco for good. These treatment options include brief counseling by a health care provider, nicotine replacement therapy or other smoking cessation medications, smoking cessation support services, free VA and state-based telephone counseling quit lines, and other online services.
