At my 31 years of age, there is one memory from my childhood that I remember very vividly. I was maybe 5 or 6 and had just listened to a presentation on the dangers of smoking, my first of many. At the time my dad had been smoking and I was so afraid of what could happen to him. So, I did what any 5-year-old would do, I drew him a picture of a cigarette with a giant red x across it and gave him my own presentation. After that, he quit. I had no idea at that age the difficulty of smoking cessation and all that comes with it.
So now that I understand, I want to share with you a few resources and products to help you or your friends and family on their smoking cessation journey. As a small child, I had little knowledge to offer my dad to help him on his journey, but I had a whole lot of love. So, if you or someone you love is feeling stuck, stick around, this may be what you need.

I am so happy that Walgreens is here to help. I am so happy my dad now gets to see me raise my own kids!

Walgreens has gum, lozenges, and mini-lozenges to help with the struggles of quitting in a few different flavors and strengths. Walgreens nicotine gum lasts about 30 minutes and up to 20 pieces per day can be chewed. The Walgreens lozenges come in 2mg & 4mg options.

Did you know you can use your FSA or HSA for smoking cessation products?
Knowing what your FSA and HSA cover can be tricky. In case you were not sure, you can use your accounts to pay for smoking cessation products. Millions of dollars a year in health savings funds is forfeited by Americans because of the uncertainty of what is covered.
Have A Good Support System
As with any challenges in life, having a good support system is key. Surround yourself with people who will support your journey or be the supportive person in your loved-ones lives. Keep your people focused on the end goal and remember YOU CAN DO THIS!
