Washington's Quitline Resumes
The Washington State Quitline resumed providing services to all adults living in the state on July 27. Anyone wanting to quit using tobacco is eligible to have at least one call of quit coaching.
Many people will be eligible for additional calls and nicotine gum or patches. The legislature approved $1.7 million to fund the Quitline for state fiscal year 2013. Three thousand one hundred people in our state called the Quitline last month. Many callers were unable to get services because they lacked insurance. Details about the Quitline are available at www.quitline.com. People wishing to access the Quitline can call 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
