Idaho has launched a new website designed to help people get free resources to fight their tobacco habit. Idahoans can now visit https:// www.quitnow.net/idaho/ for free on-line quitting services and to receive a free, four-week supply of nicotine patches, gum or lozenges.

This new service gives Idahoans dozens of free quitting tools and resources, according to Niki Forbing-Orr with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Franklin County Medical Center administrator Mike Andrus said it sounds like a great project.

“We routinely ask patients in our emergency room and inpatients if they smoke and we look for ways to help them quit,” he said. “This will be a great addition to our effort.”

Forbing-Orr said it’s easy to sign up and once a person is registered, they can receive a free, four-week supply of nicotine replacement therapy products (patches, gum, or lozenges).
