The government's plan to help people kick the smoking habit is smoking hot.
Premier Christy Clark says within a nine hour period on the first day of the program more than 300 prescriptions were filled.
The plan is to supply smoking cessation products for free to help people butt out.
Clark says she's very proud of the plan and knows how tough it can be to quit because she stopped cold turkey after 17 years of smoking.
