Tobacco users in North Dakota are encouraged to Take Down Tobacco on March 18, 2020, by making it their day to quit using tobacco. Previously known as Kick Butts Day, Take Down Tobacco Day is recognized annually across the country to encourage tobacco users to seek help in quitting tobacco. City-County Health District and NDQuits, North Dakota’s tobacco cessation program, are aiding the effort by providing practical tools and educational resources to help anyone who wants to quit.
The resources available through City-County Health District and NDQuits provide additional support in the form of personal coaching and nicotine replacement therapy medication. Free nicotine patches, nicotine gum, or nicotine lozenges are provided to qualified enrollees.
“If you know someone who uses tobacco, encourage them to make Take Down Tobacco Day their day to quit,” said Heather Schwehr. “Remind them that City-County Health District and NDQuits have the tools and resources they need to get started. Not only that, but that you’re there for them, too.”
