Tobacco users ready to quit now have an additional way to access the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line's services -- text messaging! They can still call 1-800-QUIT NOW (784-8669), but they can also text "READY" to 200-400 (message and data rates may apply).
From there, the Quit Line asks them their name name, zip code, and if they give the Quit Line permission to contact them. Over the course of the next 48 hours, the Quit Line will call the user to start them on their quitting journey. Participants can opt out at any time by texting "STOP" to the 200-400 number.
