By now, most people have given up on their New Year’s resolutions. If quitting smoking was one of them, the American Lung Association says it’s ok to try again. In support, they are offering free help to 800 Ohioans who are ready to quit.
Ohioans have the opportunity, at no cost to them, to use one of the most effective online quit smoking programs in the country, Freedom From Smoking® Plus.
“Research shows that it takes multiple attempts to successfully quit smoking. So we encourage Ohioans to try again with the help of our program for free, especially with this online option,” said Emily Reising, Health Promotions Specialist for the Lung Association. “The interactive program allows you to create a unique quit smoking plan on your computer, tablet or smartphone. In addition to tremendous health benefits, quitting smoking also has financial benefits. Not buying cigarettes saves over $2,000 a year on average.”
With the help of the Lung Association, more than a million people have achieved success with their goal to quit smoking.
From now until September 30, 2022., Ohio residents can access Freedom From Smoking® Plus at no cost—a $99.95 value per person. Ohioans can visit Lung.org/ohio-ffs for more information about the program and to register. Freedom From Smoking® can be accessed online, as a virtual clinic, by phone at 1-800-LUNG-USA, press 2 and through a self-guided workgroup.
