How much money could you save by quitting smoking? At an average cost of $5 a pack and one pack per day, smokers who quit could save about $1,800 per year!! What could you do with your extra money?

Did you know that tobacco use interferes with psychiatric medications? Or that people that experience frequent (14 days or more a month) poor mental health days have smoking rates that are nearly double (36.6%) the smoking rates of people who infrequently experience poor mental health days (19.3%)? Or that 20 minutes after quitting smoking your heart rate drops? Or that Ohio has a Quit Line, 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669), which provides nicotine patches, gum or lozenges for up to four weeks at no charge to eligible participants?

Our friend, Shernaz Reporter, Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist, with Greene County Public Health, will present
"Tobacco and You!" for people who want to quit, people who are thinking about quitting someday, and people who want to know how smoking is affecting their loved one living with mental illness. Even if you don’t want to quit now, please join us to get the facts about tobacco addiction and find out how you can quit successfully with a little help from your friends at Greene County Public Health Department.

Learn all about it!                Ask questions!

Open to the public 18 and older.   Light refreshments will be served.
