With a baby on the way, it’s twice as important to get the support you need to quit smoking.
The Kentucky Tobacco Quit Line is a FREE phone counseling service, and has specially-trained female coaches to help expectant moms to become non-smokers. This program offers at least 5 calls during pregnancy and at least 4 calls after the baby arrives. Text messaging is also an available option. The FREE program is available in either English or Spanish during normal operating hours of 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. (EDT) at 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669).
To be eligible, one must be a resident of Kentucky and currently pregnant. (If you are postpartum, you can enroll in the regular program and receive standard services.) The program is open to those 15 years of age or older with no parental consent required.
As an added bonus, the Kentucky Quit Line will provide cash incentives for pregnant participants. Call today for to enroll or to receive more information. The number again is 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669).
