If : If you are active duty in the usmc, you can get treatment at your military treatment center (mtf). Please look into the smoking cessation clinic (often under the wellness clinic) at your mtf, where you normally can get education about the issue, group treatment and appropriate medications to help you stop nicotine use. Good luck.
