I Want to Quit Tobacco


What would you like to do?

What you need to know


Quitting tobacco is hard - you know that. It is common for people to try to quit several times before they finally do. But with each time you try, you learn more about what works for you and eventually you can succeed.

Only you can decide when you are ready to quit. But once you've made the decision, the Nebraska Tobacco Quitline can help you be successful.
