    Yes it's true Phillip,  pay a visit to your pharmacist. He'll have you sign a form to promise to quit smoking and then you can discuss the different nicotine replacement products  available to you for free should you choose to use them, learn about the program and help available to you.  Good luck , Lucille.

    I've done it!  And the signing of the form isn't legally binding or anything - like if you don't quit no one is gonna come at you.  It's just confirming that you're getting the patches to attempt quitting smoking.  I'm pretty sure you're permitted to get a full run of patches once every year on behalf of the BC Government.  It's a great program.  Like Lucille said, you can go and ask any pharmacist and they can hook you up, and yes it is completely free.
