For smokers, there are just a few more days left if you want to kick the habit in 2011.
Doctor Michael Fiore of the UW Tobacco Cessation and Prevention Program says most smokers do want to quit, but may need a little extra help getting there. He says that’s why the Tobacco Quit line remains available.
By calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW, smokers can access counseling and a free two-week supply of aids, such as the nicotine patch.
Fiore estimates 70 percent of Wisconsin smokers want to stop cigarettes. He says a New Year’s Resolution can work to “get that monkey off your back.”
