    • Overview

      Every U.S. Surgeon General has proclaimed smoking cessation to be the single most important effort to discuss with patients. Some may even venture to say that nicotine, a not so perfectly legal substance, may be the most addictive substance known to mankind. Fast forward from the Big Tobacco days of yore to our current society experiences, which now include e-cigarette and vape utilization. To get one’s heart pumping as much as nicotine can, one can ponder the question of whether vaping can, or should, be utilized as smoking cessation. To answer this question and countless others, we, as healthcare professionals, truly need to understand the mindset of someone choosing to smoke tobacco or vape, along with the products being utilized and the available cessation agents, to ultimately even attempt to have continual and impactful conversations with our patients. Join Dr. Mark Garofoli for a professional discussion on all forms of nicotine available today to finally clear the smoke on how to best improve and save the lives of our patients!
