Helping you to quit

Most smokers want to quit, but it’s hard to do it without help. Lots of people try many times before they stop smoking or vaping for good. If you want help quitting, we offer the Text 2 Quit and the Smoking and Vaping During Pregnancy Text Messaging Service programs.

The Quitline, the I Can Quit website or the My Quit Buddy app are other great resources to help you quit smoking or vaping.

You can also talk to your doctor about getting a script for cheaper quit smoking medications.

Going cold turkey when trying to quit doesn’t work for everyone. Quit smoking medications or nicotine replacement products such as gum, patches, lozenges, spray and inhalers can help you manage you cravings while you are trying to quit. Talk to the Quitline or your doctor about how best to use them.
