If you or anyone you know is interested in quitting tobacco there are programs to help.
“The CDC estimates 46.1% of daily adult smokers in Wyoming quit smoking for one or more days in 2019 (Tobacco use in Wyoming, 2021).
Every quit is different, that is why the Wyoming Department of Health will work with you to make a customized plan, including a start date. “Wyoming’s state quit line invests $7.03 per smoker, compared to the national average of $2.28” (Tobacco use in Wyoming, 2021).
The Wyoming quit tobacco through Wyoming Department Health gives out free patches and gum/lozenges. They also work with you and a health provider to obtain prescription medication to help eliminate cravings. The program also comes with quit coaches and 24/7 support and tools.

Not only that, but Southwest Counseling also has a quitting nicotine program in Rock Springs, WY. This program works hand in hand with the Wyoming quit tobacco line.
