DO YOU SMOKE?  If you are recognizing the health affects of smoking, or the effects of second hand smoke to household members, perhaps it is time to consider quitting.  Maybe you have tried before, and now is a good time to try again.  People often make several attempts before they finally quit for good.  Click for more information on overcoming tobacco addiction.

While tobacco affects us all, some populations feel the burden more than others.

Wisconsin residents who make less than $15,000 smoke at nearly twice the rate as the general population.

Call 1-800-QUITNOW for free help.
