Mississippi Quitline takes to web
Mississippians tired of being addicted to tobacco now have a new, interactive way to help them quit.
The free, internet-based service – www.quitlinems.com – is designed to provide personalized plans for those ready to quit tobacco use. The website program includes free counseling and 12 weeks of free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), as long as the user is actively engaged in counseling and is medically eligible.
The site is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Tobacco users can log in and begin the counseling process. Anyone can visit the site for information or register to become a member, but free counseling services and NRT are available to Mississippi residents only.
