How Do I Get Started
Quitting tobacco is a process. The first step is the hardest. When you are ready to quit, Colorado QuitLine can help you with each step in the quitting process.
*Individual results of quitting tobacco may vary based on several factors, such as motivation to quit, use of tobacco cessation medications and duration of participation in the program
The Colorado QuitLine is a FREE online service available to Colorado residents 15 years of age and over. When you become a member, you get special tools, a support team of coaches, research-based information, and a community of others trying to become tobacco free. Our expert coaches can talk to you about overcoming common barriers, such as dealing with stress, fighting cravings, coping with irritability, and controlling weight gain.
We also offer a free telephone service, so you can speak to a coach in person, if you would prefer. Through the telephone program you can receive a supply of patches too. Call the QuitLine at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or 1-800-784-8669.
What if I don't qualify for the Program?
You must be 15 years of age or older to participate in the program. If you want nicotine patches, you must be 18 years of age or older. Not all health plans cover QuitLine costs, click on the Enrollment button or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW for more details. In addition to the Colorado QuitLine, we encourage people to visit www.TobaccoFreeCO.org for other support resources. It is also helpful to discuss quitting with your doctor.
