If your New Year's resolution was to quit smoking, we applaud you! If you’re achieving your goal, that’s great news. But if you need help, know that we’re here to encourage, support and assist anyone trying to break a nicotine addiction and move toward a life free from smoking, dipping, or using any other tobacco products, including electronic smoking devices.

We know how hard it can be to kick the habit. Whether it’s calling us, the QuitLine or talking with your health care provider, we encourage everyone to learn about all the available options that can help you succeed:

  1. Tennessee's Tobacco Quitline, 1-800-QUIT-NOW, is a free program to help you quit for good. You'll receive a free Tobacco Quit Kit and be paired with a Quit Coach to help you learn to deal with tobacco cravings and many other challenges you may face along the way.
  2. For more information about our resources and other local options for help, please call 865-215-5445.
