Cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States, killing about 480,000 Americans each year. For every person who dies this year, there are over 30 Americans who continue to live with a smoking-related disease.
Reid can provide you with the resources to help you quit! The Indiana Tobacco Quitline is a free, evidence-based, cessation counseling service that helps Indiana smokers quit tobacco. This phone-based one-on-one coaching offers tobacco users who have decided to quit help through the process to quit for life.
If you or a loved one is admitted to Reid and are a tobacco user, you may request a smoking cessation information packet from your nurse or request an in-room visit from the cessation advocate to discuss smoking cessation options. You may also request nicotine patches to help make your hospital stay more comfortable.
Tobacco users can also call 1.800.Quit.Now or visit QuitNowIndiana.com to enroll with the Indiana Tobacco Quitline.
