The QuitLine works!

You are seven times more likely to quit tobacco with the QuitLine than if you try to quit on your own. So call us for a great start to your new life without tobacco.

Three good reasons to call it quits:

  1. Your family. Live a healthier, longer life so you can be there for the people who love you and need you.
  2. Your health. Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, chronic bronchitis, asthma and emphysema. Chewing tobacco causes sores, gum recession and oral cancer.
  3. Your money. The average tobacco user spends $2,000-$3,000 a year on tobacco. Think what else you could buy with that much money.
Help is available 7 days a week.
  • Monday-Thursday – 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Friday – 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday – 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
