Tobacco Prevention News

Every year, thousands of Montanans look at the new year as an opportunity to make positive life changes. For Montanans who use tobacco, quitting is one of the best things they can do for their health. The Montana Tobacco Quit Line offers free services available to all Montanans and is here to help anyone quit.

Quitting tobacco can be the single most important step one can take to enhance the length and quality of their life. No matter what type of tobacco or how long you’ve been using, the Montana Tobacco Quit Line can help you quit.

Montanans who use the Quit Line are seven to 10 times more likely to successfully quit than those who try quitting on their own without the help of medications.

The Quit Line offers free counseling with a certified quit coach, free nicotine replacement therapy (patches, gum or lozenges) or quit medications to those who enroll and complete their first coaching session and a personalized quit plan.

Montana teens want to quit tobacco, too. According to the 2021 Montana Youth Risk Behavior Survey, among Montana high school students who had used tobacco in the last 12 months, 60 percent tried to quit.

My Life, My Quit, a specialized Quit Line program for Montanans under the age of 18, offers access to confidential coaching over chat, text or phone to help quit all forms of commercial tobacco, including e-cigarettes.

The Quit Line also offers individualized programs for pregnant women who want to quit for their own health and the health of their baby, an American Indian program that connects callers with American Indian coaches, and a program specifically designed to support those with behavioral health conditions.
