2. Practice saying this, “I’ve been watching the Tobacco Quitter Quit Smoking Videos and I Need More Help.”

It doesn’t get any easier than that. The counselors on the quitline will help you quit smoking (or quit using any type of tobacco). They won’t judge you; they will treat you with respect; and your conversations with them are confidential.

3. Take a deep breath, and call the FREE Quit Smoking Hotline at 1-800-QUITNOW (1-800-784-8669)

In the United States you can call and get FREE Quit Smoking Help by calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669). Some states have individual Quitlines, but for simplicity we have decided not to list them here.
