Tennessee offers free help for smokers with QuitLine

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennessee smokers participating in the Great American Smokeout on Thursday can get their plan to quit in place with free help from the Tennessee Tobacco QuitLine.

The QuitLine connects smokers with a personal coach who guides them through the quitting process. QuitLine clients also have access to relapse prevention techniques, information on nicotine replacement therapies and other services.

According to a news release from the state Health Department, 23 percent of Tennesseans report smoking regularly or occasionally. Smoking is a significant public health issue, contributing to life-threatening problems including cancer and heart disease.

Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner says it is tough to break an addiction to tobacco, but studies show that those who get counseling have a better chance at success.

The QuitLine is available at (800) QUIT-NOW or http://www.tnquitline.com< /A> .
