Some hospitals and clinics provide smoking cessation handouts to patients who have decided to quit smoking. The University of North Carolina Division of General Medicine and Epidemiology posts handouts on its official website. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also offers free resources to help smokers quit the vice.
The free smoking cessation handouts posted on the CDC website include useful information from healthcare professionals as well as former smokers. The site also provides a free hotline where the smoker can take advantage of the free quit-smoking plan and coaching. Most states, such as North Carolina and New York, also operate a website and a hotline that offer free stop smoking services and counseling.
