Quit Smoking Card

1-800-Quit-Now is a national router number which accepts callers from throughout the nation, seamlessly directing them to the appropriate state quitline. In an effort to promote this valuable resource, the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center has developed a small, plastic card the size of a credit card to help promote the new national quitline, 1-800-Quit-Now. If there is no state-run quitline, the call goes to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) quitline. By the end of the year, every state will be able to offer smokers this valuable service.Quitlines are toll-free telephone centers staffed by trained smoking cessation experts. For clinicians, they can provide an easy, fast, and effective way to help smokers quit. By simply identifying smokers, advising them to quit, and sending them to a free telephone service, clinicians can save thousands of lives.
