5.Smoking Cessation Information and Resources
In Massachusetts, 77% of adult smokers want to quit smoking. Those who attempt to quit using both quit medicine (like the patch, gum, or other medicines), as well as counseling are three times as likely to leave cigarettes behind for good. Smokers who have MassHealth coverage are eligible for only a $1 - $3 co-pay on all FDA approved quit medicines. Most smokers want to quit, and with the right support, they can.
If you or someone you know is interested in quitting, visit www.makesmokinghistory.org or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW for quit tips, information on health insurance, and to read the stories of real people who have quit smoking.
