Thanks for not smoking!!! - animation (c)rmh 1998, all rights reserved. We know it's hard to quit smoking, especially doing it on your own. So we've put together this special section at Framingham Online to help you quit.

Here you'll be able to find others who understand the addiction of smoking. Here you will get the support and encouragement you need to help you quit.

Our best hope is that people will help themselves quit smoking, (and help others quit too!). To start, if you need a few reasons to quit smoking, read our list.


Good News: Most smokers are either actively trying to quit or want to quit. Since 1965, more than 40 percent of all adults who have ever smoked have quit.



Bad News: Every day 3000 children start smoking cigarettes.
