NWTH Offers Stop Smoking Class

The cigarette tax is also boosting local participation in classes to quit the habit. 

The tobacco cessation program offered at Northwest Texas hospital has seen an increase in people calling and coming in to receive help to quit. 

We spoke with a counselor to find out if the cigarette tax is adding to their enrollment.

So far, most of the people interested in quitting have said it's due to the new tax.

If you're interested in kicking the habit, you can call 351-5864 for more information. Or you can Tobbaco Free Amarillo at 1-877-Yes-Quit.
