    I have been searching and searching where to get help in Ontario with NRT but have come up empty handed every time, i know their is the STOP program however I also know from past experience 5 weeks of only 1 NRT is not enough and yes I know it is also mind over matter however im struggling in this delartment so if anyone can give me some real links to NRT in Ontario that does NOT require you to be on government assistance will be greatly appreciated

    Hi carrie.e

    I used NRT lozenges and gum to quit smoking myself. The needs of each individual differ but I can say that five weeks would not have been enough time for me. I did wean myself down by that time but still have an occasional lozenge after five months. The SHO quit coaches have a lot of information and may be reached at 1-877-513-5333.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Carrie.e,

    As eagerquit has mentioned you can always feel free to call into Smokers' Helpline to speak with one of our Quit Coaches about your options. We can search your area and try to help you find some resources.

    Hope you have a great day,
    Emily
