While it’s true that smoking is a risk factor for several respiratory conditions, living with one doesn’t cut you off from our support, or the many benefits of quitting.

If you’re living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), quitting has been proven to slow disease progression. And if you’re living with lung cancer, quitting can boost your treatments and help you feel better. Regardless of your smoking history, you deserve support!
