Tobacco Free Delaware offers tips to smokers As a result of a series of adver- tisements on the risks of smoking and the rewards of quitting, To- bacco Free Delaware has received hundreds of calls from smokers who want to know how to "kick the habit."

DeNoble said there are many methods available for smokers who want to quit, including a new prescription medication designed to help smokers deal with the cravings and mood swings associated with nicotine withdrawal.

Our new idea in Long Term care does away with confusing "benefit periods"... but there's a catch. It may cost you less. Now there's a policy that cov- ers both nursing home and home health care from the same sizeable "dollar account" -- a set sum of money y_Q_U_ can use. So you have more flexibil- ity than policies with separate fixed benefits -- yet remark- ably, your premium rate will likely be lower. That's a real breakthrough! With the cost of long term care $36,000" or more  y.., you'll be glad you have the important protection of this new Long Term Care Policy GR-NI05. Especially when it's so affordable.
