PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Consumer Healthcare applauds CVS for its courageous decision to end the sale of tobacco products. This monumental step will go a long way towards improving and protecting public health.

Banning the sale of cigarettes and other harmful tobacco products from its shelf will help CVS encourage current smokers to quit, may prevent potential smokers from starting the deadly habit and may ultimately reduce the prevalence of cigarette smoking, which causes 480,000 deaths annually. CVS has GSK's full support in its quit-smoking initiatives and shares its philosophy of saying "no" to cigarettes and "yes" to quitting.

As leaders in smoking cessation, GSK encourages all smokers who are emboldened by CVS' decision to look to Nicorette gum and NicoDerm CQ patch to help them begin their quit journey. Nicorette and NicoDerm CQ can double a smoker's chances of quitting versus placebo when used as directed. We are committed to helping every smoker achieve a smoke-free life.

For more information about quitting smoking, visit www.Nicorette.com or www.NicoDermCQ.com.
