NYS “Smokers Quitline” Offering Free Nicotine Gum
The New York State Smokers' Quitline is offering up to three months of free nicotine gum while supplies last. Smokers and vapers can apply by calling 1-866-NY-QUITS (1-866-697-8487) or visiting nysmokefree.com. The Quitline asks everyone to spread the word to family and friends about this time-limited offer, made possible thanks to a generous donation from Ro, a U.S. telehealth company headquartered in Manhattan.
Nicotine gum is one of seven FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products to treat nicotine dependence and increases the chance for success in quitting. The Quitline also provides one-on-one coaching from specially trained Quit Coaches, which further supports the quit-process.
"We strongly encourage all those who hear about this offer to spread the word to family and friends who smoke or vape," said Paula Celestino, director of client relations and outreach for the Quitline, based at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, N.Y. "Likewise, we ask healthcare organizations and other groups to tell the tobacco-using patients they serve about the offer and to pass the information on to their partners and affiliates. We know most tobacco users want to quit – so the more people who know about the offer, the more people we can help."
