Quit it

    Still a smoker? Here’s one less excuse:

    limited-time-only, free nicotine patches from the Philadelphia Health Department.

    Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW to request a month’s supply.  

    Think you can do it all alone? Good for you, but studies show that smokers are much more successful in quitting smoking if they use nicotine replacement therapy.

    This new initiative is part of the Mayor Nutter’s commitment to reducing smoking in Philadelphia.
