Patti's Comments: Free patches and nicotine gum are available from the Michigan Tobacco Quitline. Supplies for 1,500 people are available on a first come, first served basis through September 30. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. The hotline is available in English and Spanish. As a person with severe asthma and allergies, and the mom of two young ladies with the same health concerns, I am very sensitive to smoking issues. I also HATE that I often purchase cigarettes and cigars for individuals with disabilities from their special needs trusts. Anyone else feel this guilt???
