Resources for Quitting Tobacco

The Quit Line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Oregon Tobacco Quit Line is a free and confidential program that helps people quit tobacco.

  • Talk or chat online with an expert Quit Coach who knows what you are going through and will help you make a Quit Plan that will work for you.
  • The Quit Line will send you materials chosen just for you or you can access the Quit Line library online
  • Ask for support. Tell your family and friends about your Quit Plan or join the Quit Line message boards online and connect with others quitting tobacco.
  • Receive two weeks of nicotine patches and/or gum to help you get started with your quit (if eligible).
  • If you ever need more help, call the Quit Line again for FREE!

For Healthcare Providers:

The Quit Line is a reliable referral resource for your patients or clients who use tobacco or nicotine products. Research indicates that provider referral of patients to tobacco cessation programs is associated with a significantly higher participation rate than simply telling patients they should quit.

All health systems and organizations can:

  • Ask every patient or client if they use tobacco.
  • Advise them to quit.
  • Refer them to cessation resource
