Can't Afford the New Cigarette Tax? Free Help is Available to Quit

By April 5, 2009

A group called The San Antonio Tobacco Prevention (that includes the S.A. Metropolitan Health District) is trying to help smokers in San Antonio overcome their addiciton.

With the April 1st cigarette tax increase putting an increasing pinch on the wallets of smokers, SATP is offering two-month supplies of nicotine replacement therapy free of charge to smokers, while supplies last.

The supplies are available for free because of the Texas Department of State Health Services, which is using funds procured from past tobacco settlements. For more information and to get your supply if you are ready to quit, visit www.tobaccofreesa.org
