Resources for Quitting Smoking

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment sponsors a website,, that is filled with resources to help smokers quit.  Just this week, a new feature was introduced on the site, a downloadable app that can give smokers a powerful incentive to quit.  The app is called “Quit and Save” — and it shows smokers just how much money they are spending on cigarettes, and how much they can save by quitting.  According to CDPHE’s news release, the average “pack-a-day” smoker spends about $2000 a year on cigarettes.  There are numerous other tobacco- and health-related resources on the Tobacco Free website, including statistics and marketing resources, so check it out and start saving money — and lives — today.
