There is also a very helpful free ONLINE service called the Nevada Tobacco Quitline ( 1-800-784-8669) that offers an array of helpful support as you become free of tobacco. Below is a description of the service, and you can find more information and enrollment forms at their website at https://nevada.quitlogix.org/default.aspx
The Nevada Tobacco Quitline is a FREE online service available to Nevada residents 18 years or older. 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.
They also offer a free telephone service, so you can speak to a coach in person, if you’d prefer. Through the telephone program you can receive a free supply of patches, gum or lozenges, too. If you would like the free nicotine patches, gum, or lozenges, you can call the QuitLine at 1-800-784-8669. Coaches will determine if you are eligible to receive the patches, gum or lozenges.
What if I don’t qualify for the Program?
You must be a Nevada resident that is 18 year old or older to participate in the program. If you want free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges, you must also be 18 years of age or older. It may also be helpful to discuss quitting with your doctor.
