Michigan is Smokefree. Are You?
People who want to quit smoking or chewing tobacco can now take advantage of free nicotine replacement products by calling the Michigan Tobacco Quitline.  The quitline phone number is 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669) and registration is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The program will provide a two-week supply of nicotine patches, gum or lozenges to tobacco users who are age 18 and over and meet basic health requirements.  The free program is available to all callers regardless of income or insurance status. The nicotine patches, gum and lozenges are available now through September 30th or while supplies last and are provided on a first come, first served basis.
