Tobacco Use Prevention Program
The constant battle with nicotine addiction is a battle veterans can win.
One of the biggest public health challenges for veterans is smoking and tobacco use cessation.
For many veterans, nicotine became an addiction while serving in the military.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects troops returning from duty. And veterans suffering from PTSD are more likely to be heavy tobacco users than their civilian counterparts.
Although using tobacco may seem like self-medicating, its effects are counteractive, and it’s a strike against recovery.
The Montana Tobacco Quit Line (1-800-QUIT-NOW) will help you combat an enemy that is our nation’s number one killer.
For those who have served and continue to serve in the United States Armed Forces, we thank you.
Your dedication and commitment to serve our country in times of war and peace is an inspiration to all of us.
