For Tobacco Users

Partners HealthCare is dedicated to helping you quit smoking and to continuing to be a non-smoker.

We want you to understand what you have to gain by quitting, and to help you achieve your goals.

We offer a variety of helpful resources and tips, from ways to quit and what to expect when you quit, to tips about staying a non-smoker.

We hope you find these resources and tips helpful.


The number one reason to quit smoking is to improve your health.  More than 440,000 people die each year from tobacco-related diseases. Other reasons people quit smoking include improving aesthetics, saving money, preventing family and friends’ exposure to second- hand smoke, and setting an example.

Learn about in-person support programs, telephone or web-based programs, medications, stress management, complementary therapies, hypnotherapy, and quitting on your own.


It’s important to understand that quitting isn't easy.  Often, it takes people many tries to quit. But, stopping isn't impossible either. In fact, more than three million Americans stop smoking every year.

Congratulations!  You've quit and now you're working hard to stay that way. Learn about programs and techniques to help you stay quit.
