Many smokers aren’t aware that nicotine can cause anxiety symptoms or make them worse. If you’re ready to kick the habit for good and start feeling better today, we’re here to help.

Resources for Clinicians

The majority of smokers would like to stop smoking, and each year, about half try to quit permanently. Yet, only about 6% of smokers are able to quit in a given year.1 Most smokers will need to make multiple attempts before they are able to quit permanently, and they will need your guidance. Our toolkit helps you assess your patient’s readiness and willingness to change and begin treatment for tobacco addiction.
