Brendan Donohue, the tobacco coordinator at the Lee County Health Department, said it's too early to determine how many people may have decided to quit after the tax hike, but said it should have a big impact - especially on young people who may not be able to afford to smoke at more than $6 a pack.
"If they're not smoking by 18, we have a good chance at keeping them smoke free for their entire life," he said. In the wake of the hike, the department is also changing tactics in curbing smoking. Thanks to a recent $630,000 grant, the Health Department and the Tobacco Free Lee Coalition are targeting hospitals, colleges and universities and encouraging them to be smoke-free. Lee Memorial Health System properties will be smoke-free Nov. 19, Donohue said. Donohue said the Health Department is offering a quit smoking line - 877-UCANNOW, counseling sessions on the phone, group programs and nicotine replacement therapy.
