Every Try Counts campaign helps you quit tobacco

RUTLAND In partnership with the Vermont Department of Health, Vermont Quit Line and the Tobacco Cessation Program at Rutland Regional Medical Center, the Rutland Area Prevention Coalition is sponsoring signs on Marble Valley Regional Transit District buses this winter. The signs, part of the statewide "Every Try Counts" campaign, tells smokers that previous attempts to quit have taught them valuable lessons that will make another attempt easier, and encourages smokers to enter a daily contest to win a free two-week supply of nicotine patches or lozenges. Entries may be sent by text message or via e-mail. The signs can be seen on buses on the South and West fixed routes in Rutland City, as well as on Rutland-Killington commuter buses. The signs were crafted by Green Screen Graphics of Rutland. The signs and their display on the buses were paid for by a grant from the Vermont Department of Health. To enter the contest, text NRT to 247365 or go to tobaccostories.org .
