Counseling and Support

The Illinois Tobacco Quitline is a free resource for any Illinois resident to use to help you quit smoking. To help you quit, a nurse, respiratory therapist or addiction counselor will walk you through what it takes to become a nonsmoker and also help you determine the best method to quit for good. We know there are thousands of people in the state who want to quit smoking but do not believe in their power to do so.

We believe in you.

We've been there day and night for people when they have strong cravings, when they don't understand the changes their body is going through, or when they need advice about switching medication. We've seen thousands of people overcome their addiction and are waiting for your call, because now is the time to quit.

When you were younger, you probably heard things like, "Don't knock it until you try it" or "What have you got to lose?" We are asking the same questions. So go on. Pick up the phone. What's the worst that could happen? What's the best that could happen? Which is worth risking?
