Veterans / Military
While QuitNow-NH (1-800-QUIT-NOW) is available for any NH resident who wants to quit tobacco or wants information about tobacco use, including our service members, the US Department of Defense has specially tailored materials and services for this population.
Quit Tobacco—Make Everyone Proud is an educational campaign for the U.S. military, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense. Launched in February of 2007, the mission of the campaign Web site is to help U.S. service members and Veterans enrolled for care in the VA health care system quit tobacco—for themselves and for the people they love.
The award-winning Web site, www.UCanQuit2.org provides the opportunity to learn more about tobacco cessation, develop a personalized plan for quitting, create a personal or public blog, and get live online help around the clock. Contact an expert coach to get answers about quitting tobacco, join a real-time group chat with a coach, or chat with others who are working to become tobacco free. Visit www.UCanQuit2.org
