From now until Sunday, Jan. 15, the NYC Health Department will offer nicotine gum to eligible smokers who smoke fewer than ten cigarettes per day. Please call 311 or go online to the NYC Website and search “NYC Quits.”

Light smokers make up 34 percent of all of New York City’s daily smokers. Heavier smokers who are interested in nicotine replacement therapy can still call 311 or call 866-NYQUITS year-round for help with quitting.
