Our Cessation Support Resource is a space that will help you to overcome the social, emotional, and physical challenges of living without nicotine. Our challenges are unique and it is imperative that African Americans are given the resources and support we need to overcome them. We know that with the right resources, stopping smoking is possible!
As AMPLIFY! we KNOW that Black people absolutely can quit smoking and we are proud to offer resources to help our community. We want to ensure that you have the support tools to help yourself, a client, or a family member stop smoking. Our resources will soon be updated and include online and social media support.
