The MaineHealth Center for Tobacco Independence provides a variety of tobacco cessation trainings and education programs for providers and clinical staff throughout the state of Maine. New research shows that the average tobacco user may have made up to thirty quit attempts by the time they reach their 40s. It is known that these multiple failed quit attempts lead to discouragement and loss of self-confidence. Advice and assistance from a healthcare professional remains a powerful tool for helping tobacco users quit and these patients should be offered assistance at each healthcare visit.
