The National Cancer Institute has developed a website, SmokeFree.gov, full of free resources to help smokers as they strategize to quit as well as those who are helping others as they work to become smoke free. Different people need different resources as they try to quit smoking cigarettes. At the top of the home web page, you’ll find links to information for woman, older adults, teens, veterans, and information in Spanish. The information and professional assistance available on this website can help to support both your immediate and long-term needs as you and others become, and remain, a non-smoker.
