Quitting Tobacco? Here's Help
Giving up smoking or smokeless tobacco is hard to do. But every day, people are taking the first step by calling a quit line. Quit lines are toll-free help lines where you can talk to a counselor about ways to stop.
Quit lines provide counseling and recorded messages. You can ask to be mailed information on how to quit. Quit lines can link you to local services to help you quit.
Many quit lines can provide information for special groups, such as:
- Pregnant women
- Users of smokeless (chew) tobacco
- People who want to help a friend or family member quit
- Different racial or ethnic groups
- Teen smokers
Anyone in the United States can call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) for information. Many states also have their own quit lines. If your state has its own quit line, you'll be automatically connected to it when you call 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
