The Kansas Academy of Family Physicians is joining physicians across the U.S. in celebrating the annual Great American Smoke Out on Thursday, November 15. Kansas has seen a decrease in the number of residents using tobacco, yet thousands still struggle with their tobacco addiction. It often takes 7 to 9 quit attempts before successfully overcoming tobacco. Patients indicate that a healthcare provider’s advice to quit is a strong motivator in taking the first step. As a family physician, you are a motivator!
