The Smokefree.gov Web site offers a variety of tools designed to help people quit smoking. Site features include an online step-by-step cessation guide, phone numbers for telephone support, a link to instant messaging with NCI counselors, facts about quitting and smoking, and self-help materials with links for downloading or ordering. Smokefree.gov was developed by NCI and received assistance from CDC. The site is free to the public.
Smokefree Women is an extension of Smokefree.gov. It is intended to help you or someone you care about quit smoking. The site offers a special focus on topics important to women. The information and professional assistance available on the Web site can help to support both your immediate and long-term needs as you become, and remain, a nonsmoker. The Web site also contains an interactive feature with Facebook to cultivate an online support community for women trying to quit. The Facebook group, Smokefree Women, will contain a number of social encouragement applications and allow "fans" to share the quit resources with other women.
National Network of Tobacco Cessation Quitlines , 1-800 QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669)
The National Network of Tobacco Cessation Quitlines is a state/federal partnership that provides tobacco users in every state with access to the tools and resources they need to quit smoking, ensuring the highest level of assistance to tobacco users who want to quit. The new toll-free number 1-800 QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669) serves as a single point of access to state-based quitlines. TCRB has played a critical role in the development of the National Network of Tobacco Cessation Quitlines and helped facilitate $13 million in funding to the Cancer Information Service (CIS), which is the lead organization within NCI on this initiative. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other partners were key collaborators on this initiative.
