What Is A Quitline?

A quitline is a FREE tobacco cessation service available through a toll-free telephone number, and is staffed by counselors trained specifically to help smokers quit.

Telephone quitlines deliver information, advice, support, and referrals to tobacco users — regardless of their geographic location, race/ethnicity, or economic status — in all U.S. states. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW and you will automatically be transferred to the free quitline servicing the area in which you live.

This program was developed in collaboration with and is sponsored by the states and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 1-800-QUIT-NOW provides free cessation assistance and resource information to all U.S. tobacco users.

It's difficult trying to quit smoking alone. Why not use the free resources available to you, and enlist the support of others who want to help you succeed? Good luck!
