According to the Center for Disease Control, tobacco remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. Cigarette smoking alone kills more than 480,000 Americans each year. So it’s no shock anymore that there’s a link between smoking and cancer. However, for many people, cigarette smoking is still a part of their life, and a very hard habit to break. Many people also think that if they haven’t quit smoking by now, they won’t ever be able to—even if they one day are faced with a cancer diagnosis. Luckily, this is not the case. On this episode of Frankly Speaking About Cancer, guest host Linda House is joined by Tobacco Treatment Specialist VJ Sleight, the "Queen of Quitting."
