Nicotine Cessation

Quitting Nicotine can be difficult but it's not impossible!

There are many resources to help you quit using nicotine and tobacco including prescription medications, over the counter therapies, coaching, online programs and more.  Engaging with tobacco cessation medication like Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT), in conjunction with behavioral coaching or counseling, has been shown to be twice as effective as using NRT or counseling alone.

Dartmouth: Soon to be a Tobacco Free Community

Dartmouth is committed to providing a healthy environment for our community members to thrive. Smoking just four cigarettes can give a person a 90% chance of becoming addicted. Tobacco use causes more deaths in the U.S. than AIDS, automobile accidents, homicides, suicides, drug overdoses and fires combined.  Tobacco use is a known risk factor for a variety of life-threatening diseases, and growing evidence links smoking cigarettes with an increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19.

Dartmouth would like to provide every opportunity possible for all of our community members to protect themselves. In support of that objective, Dartmouth has adopted a tobacco-free policy, effective March 18.
