Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line enhances services

Effective March 1, the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line has expanded its free services to help people quit smoking, vaping, or other tobacco use. Now, in addition to free calls, the Quit Line will offer free texting and online chatting with live quit coaches. For a limited time, the Quit Line will provide one 8-week shipment of nicotine patch, gum, or lozenge, or combination patch+gum or patch+lozenge to registered participants (if medically eligible, must be 18 or older to qualify). They’ll also offer up to five proactive calls from the Quit Line for free coaching support. This is available while supplies last.

There is also a new number to text for Quit Line services -- text READY to 34191. Wisconsin residents 13 and up can still reach the Quit Line 24/7 by calling 800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669) or by visiting WiQuitLine.org. Teens 13-17 who want to specifically quit vaping can text VAPEFREE to 873373 for free help via text.
