If you are a tobacco user who is hoping to quit, this might be a sign you have been looking for. The State of Michigan and the Health Department are offering free gum, nicotine patches, and lozenges.
Almost seventy percent of smokers have admitted that they want to quit. And since “the Quitline” has opened, over a 140,000 Michigan residents have participated in a program with the hope of reaching that tobacco-free lifestyle.
Smoking still remains the primary cause of preventable deaths in both Michigan and the USA.
The Quitline is at your disposal 24/7, and if you ever wish to stop with this dangerous habit, you might be one phone call away. Free supplies will be available for up to eight weeks for every resident who opts to call the Quitline.
The offer is a part of the CDC program with the goal of showing the dangers of smoking-related diseases and potentially harmful effects. MDHHS is determined to help residents quit the habit and lower the risk of diseases related to this deadly habit, such as cancer and heart disease.
