Smoking Cessation

Three Ways to Kick the Habit for Good!

Option #1

Millions of people, including many North Basin Medical Clinics patients, are getting great results with the smoking cessation medication CHANTIX. In fact, Pfizer Pharmaceutical cites a 44 percent success rate after just three weeks using this prescription method.

How does CHANTIX work? It blocks the “pleasure center” in the brain that gives you the nicotine rush when you light up. Without that rush, the body doesn’t want cigarettes anymore.

CHANTIX has its own support plan called “GET QUIT”. Not only is there a 24-hour hotline, but you can sign up for e-mail or telephone contact with a support expert!

How to get started

  • Call your insurance company to make sure your policy covers a smoking cessation appointment.
  • State Medicare recipients, contact Lincoln County Public Health at 509.725.2913 ext. 22 to find out how to qualify for FREE Chantix through your state benefits.
  • Contact any North Basin Medical Clinic provider for an appointment.
  • Get your prescription at the pharmacy
  • Sign up with Pfizer’s “GET QUIT” support plan and/or join the “Freedom from Smoking” support group at the LC Health Department (see option #3).
  • Follow the plan and keep up with your support group.
