ASHLine offers free telephone and web-based services, in both English and Spanish, to help people quit tobacco. Located in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona and funded by the state tax on tobacco products, ASHLine has been helping people quit tobacco since 1995.
Whether you are thinking about quitting, you’re ready to quit, or just working to stay quit, we can help. The Arizona Smokers’ Helpline (ASHLine) provides free services in both English and Spanish. Our quit coaches are real people located right here in Arizona. Most of them are former tobacco users, so they’ve “been there” and understand how hard it is to quit and stay quit.
In addition to our free telephone-based coaching services, you can also use WebQuit. Create an account, work through activities, set goals, and monitor your progress from your own computer. WebQuit is available whenever you need support – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
