CVS Health Ends Sale of Tobacco Products

We applaud the effort of CVS Health!

As of today, CVS Health has officially ended the sale of tobacco products at its 7,700 stores across the country, nearly one month ahead of schedule. CVS has announced the launch of a comprehensive and uniquely personalized smoking cessation program to help millions of Americans quit smoking. The program, designed with input from national experts, will include four critical components: an assessment of the smoker’s readiness to quit, education to give smokers the information and tools they need to quit, medication support to help curb the desire to use tobacco and coaching to help individuals stay motivated and prevent relapses.

In recognition of these announcements, today CVS is starting a movement of tobacco-free living, using the social campaign #OneGoodReason to provide people with the chance to tell us why they are choosing to lead tobacco-free lives. Share your #OneGoodReason to be tobacco-free, and ask your stakeholders to do the same.
