Smoking: “Quit for Love” for Valentine’s Day – FREE Offer

What better way to express your love to another person – someone whom you love and loves you back, a partner, husband, wife, significant other, boyfriend, girlfriend – than by quitting smoking. And for FREE!

For Pennsylvania smokers eager to go tobacco free, the Department of Health will offer FREE nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) four-week starter kits to qualified applicants beginning Monday, February 14. Residents can call Pennsylvania’s toll-free Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) for more information. The kits will be offered through the PA Free Quitline for approximately six to eight weeks.

The Department of Health’s NRT kits include a four-week supply of nicotine patches and related information. Callers must agree to enroll in a free cessation program with the Quitline and set an actual quit date. The cessation program ranges from three to six phone sessions. To qualify for the starter kit, they must answer several questions regarding any medical conditions that would rule out the safe use of nicotine patches.

The NRT program is part of the Department of Health’s ‘Quit for Love’ campaign, which encourages Pennsylvania smokers to do just that: put the health and well-being of loved ones first and quit for them. ‘Quit for Love’is designed to encourage quit attempts and to highlight the numerous resources for smokers to develop a quit plan, including DeterminedToQuit.com and the Quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW).
