CHARLESTON, SC (FOX24 NEWS NOW) – There are approximately 50 million people in America who are adicted to some type of tobacco product.

Today, we’re celebrating all the quitters out there and everyone who wants to be a quitter.

Do you remember or have you contemplated extinguishing that last cigarette?

Kicking the habit is one of the most difficult things to do, so those of you have, congratulations!

Doctors and researchers are working hard to find the best treatment to help people kick the habit, but they can’t do it with your participation.

Drs. Matthew Carpenter, Erin McClure and Tracy Smith of MUSC’s Project Quit joined us with details on several important studies.

For more information on the campaign and how you can participate, please visit the team’s website.
