Free 8-week tobacco quit kits available from VNA

Tobacco continues to be the leading cause of health problems. Medical authorities agree quitting tobacco is the wisest health decision a person can make. And it's never too late to do it. A smoker's risk of developing heart disease drops by 50 percent within one year of quitting. But smoking or nicotine dependence is also one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. Many attempt to quit, but few succeed without help.

Quit kits are available which promote the state program to provide 8 weeks of free nicotine patches. Call the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Assoc-iation today at 871-7639.
