Health Department offers free Nicotine Replacement Therapy
for Great American Smokeout

Do you smoke?  Does someone you care about smoke?

Would you like to quit, or support someone while they quit?

Join millions of Americans on Thursday, November 21, as they participate in the Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society.  Quitting – even for just a day – can help smokers take an important step toward improving their health.

Effective treatments and helpful resources exist. Smokers can and do quit smoking!  The Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Departments are teaming up with the CDC, the Georgia Department of Public Health and the American Cancer Society to encourage smokers to quit – and we’re providing resources to help.

Call the Georgia Quit Line at 1-877-270-STOP (7867).  Trained counselors will work with you to create a personalized plan to help you stop smoking – at no cost to you.  And – while supplies last – you can receive a four-week supply of free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (available to Georgia tobacco users aged 18 and older).

Tobacco use can lead to tobacco/nicotine dependence and serious health problems. If you stop using tobacco, it can significantly reduce the risk of suffering from smoking-related diseases.

So what are you waiting for?  Make the choice to quit.  Make the call today.
