Get fit. Drink less. Save money. Quit smoking.

All are admirable goals, and they’re among the top New Year’s resolutions for many New Yorkers. Luckily, there’s a plethora of online resources available that can help you actually
follow through.

Quitting smoking, for instance, is a big one — and the New York State Smokers’ Quitline (1-866-697-8487) offers free assistance for those who want to stop using tobacco. The Quitline
provides free nicotine patch or gum starter kits, quit-coaching, self-help materials, an online smoke-free community, motivational messages and daily tips.

Smokers can go online to apply for the nicotine patch or gum starter kit and to join Breathe, a personal online quit program, at www.nysmokefree.org.

Those looking to curb their drinking in the wake of New Year’s Day hangovers can check out a ton of easy-to-read material on the website of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, at www.niaaa.nih.gov.
