Despite increased awareness about the dangers of tobacco, North Carolina still ranks highly among states with the highest concentration of tobacco users. More than 20 percent of adults in our state are still cigarette smokers.
Most tobacco users are aware of the dangerous health effects and have even tried to quit before. But many don’t realize that there is help out there.
That’s why North Carolina’s leading patient groups, nonprofits, health care delivery systems, and state and local agencies have come together to launch Race to Quit, NC. Together, we are offering the assistance and resources that North Carolinians need to cross the finish line and join the quitter’s circle.
