However, it's hard to quit smoking and you might need some help. Tobacco is an addictive drug and it can be a very difficult to quit. Seventy percent of all adult smokers want to quit smoking but are overwhelmed with the process.

In this section, you will find a list of local smoking cessation programs (help with quitting), information on quitting smoking, and a selection of resources (helplines, websites, and other materials) that can assist you in being more successful in your attempt to stop smoking.

In addition to these resources, the use of Bupropion (Zyban, Welbutrin) and/or a form of nicotine replacement therapy can double your odds of quitting. Health insurance and workplace programs may cover some or all of the costs of these medications. Ask your family doctor/primary care provider (PCP) for more information on quitting smoking.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester's smoking cessation program can meet your specific needs and help you on your journey of living smoke-free.
