Everybody loves free.
Quitline Iowa is a way for you to be free from tobacco addiction, plus the help you can get from Quitline is free of charge for anyone living in Iowa.
One of the most important factors in your success in quitting tobacco is your commitment to making a change for the better. Take the commitment quiz posted on the Quitline Iowa website to assess your readiness.
Folks who have successfully stopped smoking are relieved to be breathing more freely and not being tied to searching for a place for a quick smoke throughout the day. Others who have quit tell how they feel more financial freedom now that they aren’t buying cigarettes.
But Quitline isn’t just for smokers – if you want to quit snuff, dip or chew or stop using an e-cigarette or nicotine vaping product, free help is available for you too. Call 800-784-8669 or go to the Quitline Iowa website for free help.
Although Quitline is free, if you decide to use quit medications, there may be a cost. Some insurances pay for these medications. Insurance providers know that if you quit tobacco, your health will improve, and you’ll be less likely to need costly treatment and hospitalizations.
