Tobacco users looking for a way kick the habit can receive free help from the state.
The Alabama Department of Public Health created a personalized web-based program to gradually ween the user off tobacco.
The "Alabama Quit Now" site provides free live counseling and nicotine replacement therapy for users.
Adults and teens under the age of 19 are able to participate in the program.
"No one will pressure that person and it's up to that person if they want to participate. They will receive patches for 4 weeks which will be used daily to stop smoking or using tobacco,” says Stephanas White, Public Health Social worker.
The “Alabama Quit Now” website works in conjunction with the Tobacco Quitline.
