What If a Person Wants To Quit?
If someone you know is smoking or using tobacco in another way, encourage him
or her to talk to a parent, school guidance counselor, or other trusted adult. A
national toll-free number, 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669), can help people get
the information they need to quit smoking. Callers to the number are routed to
their state's smoking cessation quitline or, in states that have not established
quitlines, to one maintained by the National Cancer Institute. In addition, a
Web site -- www.smokefree.gov -- from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
offers online advice and downloadable information to make stopping easier.
