Quitting tobacco is hard work! At SUNY Oswego we recognize that many members of our campus community have attempted to quit before or wish to quit for the first (and hopefully the last) time. Because of this we have many free or low cost resources available to tobacco users to make quitting a success. Whether you are just now starting to think about quitting or have made the decision to do so, we have resources available both on-campus at the Mary Walker Health Center and off-campus at the Oswego Health, through the NYS Quitline, Tobacco Free Network of Oswego County, and national resoures. Check out what resources may be most beneficial to you and start making tobacco something you used to do.
