Tobacco Disparities – How the Quit Line Addresses Them

The Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line helps people across the state who need it most.

Smoking disparities

All of these groups are at higher risk of illness or death caused by tobacco use than the general population.

Quit Line Coaches offer free support to all callers, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Coaches listen to the callers and help them develop a personalized plan to quit. This includes a free Welcome Packet and can include free medications mailed to their door.

Quit Line services are offered in virtually every language, and as TTY. We also offer the American Indian Quitline.

The Quit Line participated in the Striving to Quit study to help low-income people to quit smoking. The Quit Line also is conducting research on how best to help people who are most vulnerable to tobacco-caused disease and death.

The Quit Line is here not just for adults, but for teens, too – whether they want to quit smoking, vaping, or chewing tobacco. Services are available to any Wisconsin resident age 13 and older.
