Resources Expand For Those Who Wish To Quit Nicotine

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 offer one, 8-week shipment of nicotine patch, gum, or lozenge, or combination patch and gum or patch and lozenge to registered participants if medically eligible, and are 18 or old. They are also offering up to five proactive calls from the Quit Line for
free coaching support while supplies last.

After that, services will revert to a 2-week supply of medications and coaching calls only if initiated by the person who wants to quit smoking, chewing or vaping nicotine.

As of March 1, there’s a new number to text for Quit Line services. People interested should text the word READY to 34191.

Wisconsin residents 13 and up can still reach the Quit Line voice line 24/7 by calling 800-QUIT-NOW or by visiting Teens 13-17 who want to specifically quit vaping can text VAPEFREE to 873373 for free help via text.
