Put ‘Stop smoking’ at the top of your New Year’s resolution list

If the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 taught us anything, it is a better understanding of how the air we breathe in and out of our lungs can affect us and those around us. We’ve learned to mask, social distance, quarantine, and eat takeout — all to keep a tiny virus out of our lungs. We’ve learned that our lungs can be vulnerable and we need to keep them healthy, so they will keep us healthy.

One of the best ways to keep lungs healthy is to never smoke or vape. And if you do smoke or vape already, the best thing you can do is quit.

“One of our focuses this year has been smoking cessation,” said Jonathan Callaway, MD, a new pulmonologist in southern Utah. “At Intermountain’s Pulmonary Medicine Clinic in St. George, we have been addressing smoking cessation with our patients who currently smoke. We want them to know we offer a great smoking cessation program, counseling, medications, and nicotine replacement to support those who want to quit smoking.”
