On July 1, the price of cigarettes in Minnesota is increasing significantly. The new average price in the state will be more than $7.50 per pack. Luckily, all Minnesotans have access to free quit-smoking support through QUITPLAN Services.
Rising prices are a great motivator for smokers to quit. Previous increases in Minnesota led to huge jumps in calls to quit-smoking helplines, and were responsible for 43 percent of all smoking declines in the state since 1993.
Funded by the state’s tobacco settlement, QUITPLAN Services offers phone and online counseling. More than 20,000 Minnesotans have successfully quit tobacco by using the service. Call 1-888-354-PLAN or visit quitplan.com to learn more.
