Helping Smokers Quit
Approximately 70% of smokers want to quit. Smokers are twice as likely to quit for good if they quit with help, such as nicotine replacement therapy, other medications, and counseling.

Smokers don't use help for many reasons:

  • They may not know the benefits of quitting with help.
  • Quit-smoking medications can be expensive, and many insurance plans don’t cover these products.
  • Smokers may not know how to access free or low-cost counseling.
  • They may have misperceptions about the harms of certain treatments.


Get Healthy Philly is promoting the benefits of quitting with help and making it easier and cheaper to get help.
