(KTVI) - The New Year is a popular time to kick some bad habits and start some new, healthy ones. Quitting smoking is one of those.  But, actually biting the bullet and throwing away the cigarettes can be incredibly difficult and sometimes it feels like the people who are trying to convince you to quit are preaching at you and they may not understand just how hard it is to quit.

Someone who does understand is Steve Marbain, the Pulmonary Rehab coordinator and Freedom from Smoking facilitator from Mercy St. Louis Medical Center.   If you would like to learn about their smoking cessation groups or one-on-one counseling, call 314-251-3965
