HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we discuss the importance of quitting a habit like smoking.

In Henrico- Dr. Edwin Robinson is still trying to convince his patients to quit smoking.

Smoking causes changes in your body and in the way you act and tobacco smoke causes cancer.

Nicotine replacements like gum and patches can ease the transition away from the habit of smoking.

The key- get ready. Get support and encouragement. Learn how to handle stress and the urge to smoke. Keep trying.
