According to the CDC, cigarette smoking remains the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. This is because smoking harms almost every organ in the body. Smoking causes cardiovascular diseases, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, to name a few. And we know that smoking is the biggest killer of those previously treated for a substance use disorder. So, how can we help those in recovery start to change their relationship with tobacco? By providing information to increase awareness, focusing on overall wellbeing, and reframing quitting or cutting down as something that will enhance someone’s life in recovery. Join us to dive deep into the connection between smoking and chronic disease and brainstorm ways to help clients in recovery start to think about making a change in their tobacco use.
