Arizona Smokers' Helpline
Free telephone and web-based services to help you quit tobacco: 1-800-556-6222
"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."

The American Lung Association
"Every year in the U.S. over 392,000 people die from tobacco-caused disease, making it the leading cause of preventable death. Another 50,000 people die from exposure to secondhand smoke. Tragically, each day thousands of kids still pick up a cigarette for the first time. The cycle of addiction, illness, and death continues. What can be done to stop smoking? The American Lung Association is working to strengthen laws and policies that protect everyone from secondhand smoke and prevent young people from starting. We are also committed to helping smokers quit with our smoking cessation programs."
