New Year's resolutions start on this day and there's some extra help for smokers to kick the habit.

ClearWay Minnesota has a new free program called "Together We Quit." You can sign up for the free program on line to get tips, tools, and support through the month of January. You will receive daily mobile text messages to your cell phone, weekly emails, and they can also interact with a quit coach on the group's Facebook page every Friday afternoon.

By kicking the smoking habit, you can also keep more money in your pockets in 2013. Just one pack of cigarettes a day costs an average of $2,000 a year.
