It’s your decision, but there are plenty of people who support it, including your family, co-workers and the staff of the Weed Army Community Hospital on Fort Irwin. Whether your plan is to go “cold turkey” or quit using gradual cessation, there are plenty of non-nagging suggestions available to anyone considering quitting from your health care providers on post. If you need to talk to someone about quitting call the WACH Preventive Medicine Office at 380-3053. The WACH Smoking Cessation program is open to all servicemembers, family members and military civilian identification cardholders and is free of charge.
