    Hi anaul

    Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking. It is a good idea to have a quit plan in place. Make a list of your reasons for quitting and keep it in a place you look at often. You might discuss the possibility of using quit aids with your doctor, pharmacist and a quit coach. You will also find support here in the forums.

    Wishing you every success.

    Are there any programs that help with the cost on quitting aids such as patches?

    Hi Anault,

    Some districts do have programs that help with the cost of the quit aids It isn't every area that does. Some Family Health Team practices offer it as well. The best thing to do, is to give us a call and we will look up the local resources and let you know if that is available.

    Our number is 1-877-513-5333.

    Lillian
