A Chance to Quit Smoking


Every year, thousands of Montanans look to the New Year for a fresh opportunity to change their lives for the better. For Montanans who use tobacco, a great way to accomplish this goal is to quit for good. The Montana Tobacco Quit Line and American Indian Commercial Tobacco Quit Line are free services available to all Montanans that can help you achieve a tobacco-free life.

The Quit Line offers free and reduced-cost medications, counseling, and personalized quit plans to all callers. There are also dedicated programs for pregnant women and American Indian callers; these programs deliver tailored services to create the best opportunity for success.

Quitting tobacco can be the most important thing you do for your health; e-cigarettes are not a scientifically proven cessation method. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, e-cigarettes are not an FDA-approved tobacco cessation medication. New FDA regulations requiring disclosure of e-cigarette ingredients have not yet come into effect. Currently, there is no way of knowing exactly what is being inhaled”, says Tobacco Prevention Specialist Brittany Archambeault, with the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program. The Quit Line and FDA-approved cessation medications, available through enrollment, are proven, effective ways to help stop tobacco use successfully.

To get started, call the Quit Line toll-free at 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669), or visit to enroll. American Indian callers can reach Native coaches directly by calling 1-855-372-0037. Set yourself up for success in the New Year, and call the Quit Line today!
