State Offers Stop-Smoking Hotline

In Today’s Tennessean:

The Tennessee Department of Health has launched a statewide telephone-based tobacco cessation program, made possible by $450,000 in state and federal funding.

State residents can call the Tennessee Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW for help to quit smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco. Callers will be connected with a trained professional, who will guide them through the quitting process. And they will have access to ongoing professional help via individually scheduled calls from a counselor personally assigned to them.

As a smoker, I sincerely appreciate the offer. But talking to someone over the phone is not going to get the job done. I need nicotine not a conversation!
