Quitting tobacco is key to protecting our health and the health of our loved ones. But quitting for good isn’t easy. Fewer than 1 in 10 people are able to quit without the help of coaching or nicotine quit medications.

The Quitline is here to help you be successful in your quit journey! Our free tobacco cessation program is based on proven strategies that have helped more than 1.5 million people quit tobacco. Our coaches and online community provide the support you need. Plus, we connect you to resources like nicotine quit medications.

Whether you’re ready to quit today, just curious about quitting, or supporting a loved one who uses tobacco, the Quitline can help.
