Suffolk County, NY - October 26, 2016 - Health Commissioner James Tomarken, MD, encourages residents who use tobacco to obtain help in breaking their addiction through Suffolk County’s “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program.

“Breaking an addiction to nicotine can be very difficult,” said Dr. Tomarken. “Studies have shown that smokers who try to quit smoking using a combination of behavioral support and medicine  are three times more likely to be successful than those who try to stop smoking without support.”
