If you are a cancer survivor who smokes, one of the best things you can do is to stop smoking. For many cancers, smoking leads to an increased rate of cancer recurrence. Smoking also leads to poor outcomes in surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation — all important cancer treatments.

Cancer survivors who smoke tend to have high-level nicotine dependence, high-level stress, low energy, and can have feelings of anxiety and depression. It is especially hard to quit smoking when faced with these challenges. Quit at Duke meets the specific challenges of cancer survivors who smoke.

When you come to Quit at Duke you will receive:

Comprehensive evaluation to determine which treatments will be most effective for you

Evidence-based medications — often combination medications or adaptive treatment

The option of several evidence-based behavioral treatments

Long-term phone-based “check-ups”
