Tobacco

 

tobacco

The toxic chemicals in tobacco signal the heart to beat faster and harder causing blood vessels to constrict and forcing blood to travel through a narrower space. Tobacco smoke contributes to heart disease, as much as cancer, and leaves the body vulnerable to respiratory diseases like emphysema.

Quitting smoking is something that most smokers plan to do at sometime in their lives, and many have tried. Unfortunately, cigarette smoking is highly addictive making quitting an extremely hard thing to do.

If you are currently using tobacco products and would like help quitting the staff of the Counseling Center and Student Health Services are here for you.

Counseling Center- call 580-5555, or stop by the office on the first floor of Jonsson Tower

Student Health Services- call 580-5550, email health@skidmore.edu, or stop by the office on the first floor of Jonsson Tower
