The state Department of Health is once again offering free nicotine patches to smokers who want to quit.
Up to eight weeks of nicotine patches will be offered to participants who are medically eligible, starting Thursday, November 15.
Interested smokers can find out if they are eligible by calling 800-QUIT-NOW, where they will be connected to someone who will help them develop and carry out a plan to quit smoking.
The free nicotine patches are offered to Pennsylvanians each year in conjunction with the Great American Smokeout.
