New Year is a perfect time to prepare for new and healthier
beginnings. Many smokers use the New Year’s holiday as motivation to
quit. If you’re one of them, it may be the most important resolution
you ever make, and we can help you succeed!
is no better time to quit than now, and the free Maryland Tobacco
Quitline, 1-800-QUIT-NOW, can help you create a plan that works just for
you. Quit coaches are available to talk to you "live" 24 hours a day, 7
days a week. Many coaches are former smokers themselves, so they
understand exactly what you are going through.
Quitline is not one-size-fits-all; the Quit Coaches will listen to you
to find out what has worked for you in the past - or what hasn't - so
you can develop a plan together that will make you tobacco-free in the
New Year. Also, while supplies last, the Quitline can send you Nicotine
Replacement Therapy - the patch or gum - right to your house, for
free! People who try to quit smoking using a quitline succeed about
seven times more often than those who try to quit on their own.
Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) today, or visit www.SmokingStopsHere.com

give up smoking, DHMH’s Center for Tobacco Use Prevention and Control
is offering a free webinar, “Preparing to Quit” to offer quit tips to
state employees and other Marylanders trying to quit. The webinar will
be held on Thursday, December 20th at noon. Learn more about the

Make 2013 your year to quit!
