    Tobacco Treatment Specialist Eletta Hansen discusses if cutting down is a good alternative to quitting smoking.

    Host: If I can not quit smoking, will it help to cut down?

    Eletta Hansen: Yes, we do think your exposure to the chemicals can certainly help to reduce the risk. We do not advocate cutting down, we see this isn't all of a non addiction, but if you have tried and you have not made that commitment to quit smoking, by all means reducing the exposure will help to reduce the risk.
