Congratulations on your decision to quit!
This may be the first time you’ve taken steps towards quitting smoking or it may be the fifteenth time. No matter how many times you’ve tried, using proven methods for quitting will help improve your chances of quitting for good!
Using quit-smoking medicines and counseling are both very effective tools to help you quit. In fact, using support and medicines together can make you three times as likely to quit.
The Massachusetts Smokers’ Helpline is available to you for free support and coaching to make a plan designed for you. Call 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669) today!
Quit smoking medicines that have been approved by the FDA include: the patch, gum, lozenge, nasal spray, inhaler, Chantix and Wellbutrin. Talk to your doctor to decide which medicines would work best for you.
Contact your health plan to find out if your insurance benefits will help cover the costs of medicines and counseling. Many insurance plans offer free or low cost quit-smoking medicines, so it’s worth the call!
