Where can I get help to quit smoking?

Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits. You lower your risk for different types of cancer and don’t expose others to secondhand smoke—which causes health problems in infants, children and adults. Call the state tobacco quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669); TTY 1-855-855-7081; relay service 1-800-833-6384 or visit http://women.smokefree.gov/.

Explore options that are funded by the state. For example, as a result of a tobacco settlement, the state of Pennsylvania has invested several resources to help you quit comfortably. You can call several toll-free Quit Lines to get advice on how to quit or to check on the location of the community cessation program nearest you. Feel free to contact your local health community to find out more about their treatment partnerships.
