Stop Smoking and Live Better!

The Doctors welcome Becky, who began smoking as a teenager and now has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is forced to continuously use an oxygen tank. Becky was able to quit smoking and is now involved with CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign, which began in 2012 and has since helped at least 500,000 people quit smoking. The Doctors and Becky share tips on how to quit smoking and discuss a variety of health benefits that can occur in the body after you have stopped smoking. Additionally, www.SmokeFree.gov has phone apps to help you quit smoking and smokers can get free help, including counseling and in some cases medication, by calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW or visiting cdc.gov/tips. *Sponsored by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
