Debunking Common Myths About Tobacco/Nicotine Products and Their Impact

Misconceptions about tobacco/nicotine products, as well as how and why people use them, are pervasive. Are “light” cigarettes less harmful than regular cigarettes? Can smoking/vaping be a helpful way to calm down and relieve stress? Is nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) dangerous? Will quitting enhance symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder? Is it ever too late to quit during pregnancy? Come to this interactive, hour-long session to learn about some common myths and how to address them with clients/patients you work with.
