Nicotine in Tobacco is Addictive

Nicotine is a highly addictive drug found in all forms of tobacco. Whether you smoke a cigarette or cigar, use chewing tobacco, snuff, or a hookah, you receive nicotine.

Quitting tobacco is a hard thing to do. Research shows that the combination of counseling and nicotine replacement therapy is more effective than either one alone.*

Quit Smoking, Stop Using Tobacco

Boynton Health offers tobacco cessation counseling with a licensed chemical dependency counselor who will help you develop an individualized plan to quit tobacco that includes education, support, and follow-up. Over-the-counter nicotine replacement medication is available at no out-of-pocket cost to full-time students who pay the Student Services Fee.

A Boynton Health medical provider can offer prescription medication and some counseling.

All visits for tobacco cessation counseling are non-judgmental and supportive. For an appointment, please call 612-625-3222.

"To cease smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know because I’ve done it a thousand times."
