Tobacco Cessation Resources:
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health recently launched Take the First Step, a campaign that educates adults about free resources designed to help them quit smoking, vaping, or using other tobacco or nicotine products. The campaign offers information about 1-800-QUIT-NOW, Massachusetts’ Quitline for tobacco/nicotine, and encourages residents to call for support or to connect online at mass.gov/quitting.
Research shows that getting support can double an individual’s chances of quitting for good.
Take the First Step has ads, videos, and resources available in English and Spanish. It launched in December and will run through the beginning of March on a variety of digital channels and on social media; through billboards and print ads in select cities and towns across the Commonwealth, on Spanish television, and on radio.
A brochure about quitting, wallet cards with 1-800-QUIT-NOW information, and other materials relevant to quitting smoking, vaping, or other tobacco/nicotine use are available free of charge at the Massachusetts Health Promotion Clearinghouse.
Learn more about free resources to quit tobacco/nicotine and watch a video about 1-800-QUIT-NOW at mass.gov/quitting. As you are able, we’d appreciate you passing along this information to your relevant programs and networks.
If you have questions or comments about the campaign and related materials, please contact Patti Henley at [email protected] or Rachel Cohen at [email protected] or your local Tobacco Free Community Partnership Program.
