It’s one of the biggest challenges to quitting cigarettes, e-cigarettes, or any tobacco product: coping with cravings from nicotine withdrawal.

Whether it’s cigarettes, e-cigarettes, or any other tobacco product, trying to quit “cold turkey” – meaning to stop abruptly without any support or replacement medications – is unlikely to be successful.

    Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of something so special. My dad began smoking cigarettes when he was 16. He died of lung cancer in 2006 at the age of 51. For years, I have tried to think of ways I could educate others about the dangers of smoking. Project Prevent gave me that opportunity.
