For some, a concern about weight gain can lead to a decision not to quit. But the weight gain that follows quitting smoking is generally very small. It is much more dangerous to continue smoking than it is to gain a small amount of weight.

Bloomington Area Cessation Resources

Because smoking is a complex habit that encompasses physical, behavioral, and psychological aspects, smokers need a plan that addresses these aspects simultaneously. The best chance for long-term success happens when the quit plan includes the two components below.

1. Consult a health or medical professional. Your doctor, dentist, or other health professional can provide insights into the risks of smoking as it relates to you personally. They can also help you with information about the proper use of medication and nicotine replacement products.

2. Check out all available resources. Following is a list of cessation resources available on the Bloomington campus, in the community, and on the Web.
