MO Tobacco Quitline
Free comprehensive program

The Missouri Tobacco Quitline can help tobacco users quit by offering counseling, practical information on how to quit, referrals to other cessation resources, and, if eligible, FDA-approved cessation medications. The Missouri Tobacco Quitline is free, confidential and an effective way to help Missourians quit all forms of tobacco, including e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. This service is also available for former smokers who are trying to avoid a relapse and for those who want information to help a family member or friend quit tobacco. Over the past 25 years, many studies have been done that show the benefits of quitlines. Studies show that people who receive coaching through the quitline more than double their chances of quitting and are more likely to stay quit. Combining counseling and quit-smoking medications, such as patches, triples success rates.
