It’s that time of year again, time to make resolutions. Why not make a resolution to be healthier? Why not decide to become tobacco free? It’s not only healthier for you, the tobacco user, but for those around you as well.

The Alabama Department of Public Health would like to help you quit. It offers a state-wide telephone-based tobacco cessation service, as well as an online cessation program. We offer counseling to all Alabamians who need assistance quitting cigarettes and chewing tobacco, along with self-help materials, referrals to local programs and discount coupons for nicotine replacement products.

Each participant will receive a Quit Kit, as well as discount coupons for nicotine replacement therapy. Also, some individuals will receive free nicotine replacement therapy (patches). Non-tobacco users are also encouraged to seek help for friends and loved ones who want to quit.

Services are also provided in Spanish and other languages as needed through a translator service. Alabama is one of 41 states that offers a free tobacco cessation service. Please call 1-800- QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) or contact us online at www.alabamaquitnow.com. It’s that time.
