Quitting tobacco is not easy. Most ex-smokers report that it takes several tries to quit for good. Research shows that Quitline users have about a 60% better chance of staying smoke-free than those who try to quit on their own.
Quitlines have helped thousands of smokers become ex-smokers. Throughout America, Quitlines reach about 460,000 tobacco users per year.
NJ Quitline is a free telephone-counseling service for smokers who are ready to stop. Call today and speak with your own quit coach. No matter which quit method you choose the Quitline can more than double your chances for success.
Every smoker thinks about quitting. You probably have at some point, but were afraid, or it wasn’t a good time, or you just weren’t ready. That’s OK and very common.
To help you decide if NOW is the time, take our Quit Quiz:

2. Is quitting smoking a #1 priority for me?
3. Have I tried to quit smoking before?

5. Am I committed to trying to quit even though it may be tough at first?
6. Are my family, friends, and co-workers willing to help me quit smoking?
7. Besides health reasons, do I have other personal reasons for quitting smoking?
8. Will I be patient with myself if I backslide?
