Some individual states offer stop smoking products for free, including Minnesota and New York. The New York State Smokers' Quitline offers nicotine replacement therapy starter kits and quit coaches to help smokers overcome their addiction. Minnesota's QUITPLAN offers a two-week starter kit of gum, patches or lozenges.
The first two weeks of quitting smoking are the hardest, which is why Minnesota's QUITPLAN program helps citizens find out which nicotine replacement works best for them in this crucial time period. In Florida, TobaccoFreeFlorida.com offers free resources and classes through health education centers. The website also features a calculator where users can see how much their tobacco habit affects them financially.
