Health risks of smoking and the benefits of quitting

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Judith McKenzie is regularly helping her patients quit smoking at Primary Health Group-Johnston-Willis.

Her first step is to teach them about health risks of smoking and the benefits of quitting.

Don't quit "cold turkey" since you will experience nicotine withdrawal and will likely relapse.

Talk to your doctor about over the counter nicotine supplements and prescription medications that can help you quit.
