Why my healthcare provider?

Cigarettes are designed to be addictive – getting support can help. Your healthcare provider is the best person to talk with about your quitting process. Ask about which stop–smoking medications and dosage are right for you. Your provider can give you a prescription for the medications. Most stop-smoking medications will be covered by your health plan.
