Quit Smoking Assistance

The New York State Smokers' Quitline provides individualized coaching and a free starter kit for eligible smokers who are trying to stop smoking.

You can get information, resources, and tools to help you, a friend, or a family member stop smoking from the City's NYC Quits website .

Quit Smoking Clinics throughout NYC provide supportive counseling and medication. Services are provided at little or no cost.

Quit-smoking medications are covered for Medicaid enrollees, including Medicaid Managed Care, and Family Health Plus. Your doctor can write you a prescription for patches, gum, and other medications to help you quit.
