A new research study for the Department of Defense community, the Freedom Smoking Quitline, is interested in enrolling TRICARE beneficiaries motivated to quit smoking. If selected, you will receive four 30-minute telephone-counseling sessions with a smoking cessation counselor and eight weeks of free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) mailed to your home. If after three months, you are still smoking, you will be eligible to receive additional counseling treatment and nicotine patches or gum. During a final telephone survey, about 12 months later, they will ask you some questions about your smoking status and level of satisfaction with the program. Your participation and the NRT are 100% free. Participants must be 18 years or older. If you are interested in participating in the Freedom Smoking Quitline program, please call 1-844-I-AM-FREE (1-844-426-3733) toll free, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am -5:00 PM CDT.
