Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, the annual event which will be hosted Thursday, Nov. 15, challenges smokers to start the quit process by joining thousands of other Americans in quitting for the day.

Helping about 40 percent of people who call quit using tobacco, the ASHLine has proven to be one of the best techniques the state has to reduce the number of tobacco users. Telephone quit coaching is available at 1-800-55-66-222 (English and Spanish) as well as additional online services at ASHLine.org including WebQuit ™ and the Call it Quits iPhone app.

Funded by the state tax on tobacco products through the Bureau of Tobacco and Chronic Disease at the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Arizona Smokers’ Helpline and ASHLine.org have been helping people quit tobacco since 1995.

For information about quit smoking services around the state, call 1-800-55-66-222 or visit ASHLine.org.
