The University realizes that some people may have a hard time cutting back their use
of tobacco. Nicotine is an addictive drug, and withdrawing from it may require more
than personal willpower; it may take assistance from other sources.
You are not alone! You can do it!
Millions of smokers have attempted to quit with 68% reporting they want to quit completely.
Since 2002, the number of former smokers has exceeded the number of current smokers.
Remember, you are not alone. The U of M has many on- and off-site tobacco cessation
resources at your disposal.
