There has never been a better time to quit tobacco. All FEHB plans offer 100% coverage to help you quit once and for all.
Tobacco users who quit greatly reduce their risk for disease and premature death, improve their health and quality of life, and increase their life expectancy. Quitting tobacco results in both immediate and long-term health benefits. While health benefits are greater for tobacco users who stop at earlier ages, cessation is beneficial at all ages. Quitting smoking is the single most important action that smokers can take to protect their own and their families’ health. Just two to three weeks after quitting, breathing becomes easier and after a year, the risk for heart disease is lowered by 50 percent. Eliminating second hand smoke from the house also decreases the risk for heart attacks and asthma in non-smokers. For pregnant women, quitting smoking greatly increases the chances that they will give birth to a healthy baby.
