Tips Program Information
CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers® campaign is the only national media campaign focused on inspiring the 7 in 10 American adults who smoke and want to quit. Tips® features real people—not actors—suffering from the health consequences of smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. It connects people who smoke with resources, including a free quitline, 1-800-QUIT-NOW, to help them quit.
Treatment Center Tobacco Cessation Materials
Tobacco dependence is a chronic, relapsing disorder that, like other chronic diseases, often requires repeated intervention and long-term support. The majority of people who use tobacco want to quit, but most try to quit multiple times before succeeding. Healthcare providers in a variety of settings play a critical role in helping people quit using tobacco. Even brief advice from you can make it much more likely that your patients will try to quit—and ultimately succeed. Evidence-based treatment—including counseling and cessation medications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—significantly increases success in quitting tobacco. You can make a difference!
