Your military training taught you the importance of planning and teamwork.

Quitting cigarettes is no different.

Combine support and medication like the nicotine patch, and you're three times more likely to quit for good than if you tried to go cold turkey.

Take your first steps toward victory over tobacco.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health in collaboration with the Department of Veterans' Services is offering FREE Nicotine Patches to veterans and their families. Massachusetts veterans and their families are eligible. Some medical restrictions apply. Available through 6-30-2011 or while supplies last.
