Deciding to quit is a huge first step and the Colorado Quitline is here to support you throughout your journey.

You can choose what works for you, from using the website or text feature, to talking with a quit coach over the phone. We also offer free nicotine patches, lozenges, and gum that can help you manage nicotine cravings.

Quitting tobacco and nicotine products is tough but having the right help makes it easier. Let’s get started!

You have control over how you quit & how you use QuitLine:

Quit Your Way

We know everyone’s journey to quitting is different – but you don’t have to do it alone. With the Colorado Quitline, you’ve got options. That means if you find one resource doesn’t quite work for you, you can always try something new.

Let’s start by finding out what works for you.

Feel Better, Live Better.

The Benefits of Quitting Start Today!

Take a Deep Breath

Your sense of smell will get sharper, allowing you to really stop and smell the flowers.

Savor the Flavor

Food will taste better because your sense of taste improves after quitting.

Get Up and Get Active

Quitting gives you more energy. More energy means more opportunities to be active with family and friends!

Let Your Light Shine

When you quit, your skin will look and feel healthier and happier.

Money in the Bank

You’ll have more money for other things you can use to treat yourself.

Breathe Easier

Quitting smoking can lead to less coughing and irritation in your throat and lungs.

Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Although quitting is tough, you will find yourself less stressed over time, as nicotine use causes more anxiety.

Keep the Beat

After quitting, your heart immediately experiences benefits like lower blood pressure and improved circulation, reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Plus, you’ll see long-term benefits too, if you keep it up!

How Liam Quit for Good — and You Can Too!


Like most people, it took Liam several tries to finally quit for good. Seeing his brother diagnosed with asthma because of smoking helped him realize it was time to quit, and he’s used bird watching as a coping tool. What’s your reason to quit?

Quit Your Way with the Colorado QuitLine

Text

Stay on track by getting text messages to help you along in your quit journey. Your coach can answer questions over text or even do a coaching session this way. 

Visit our website or call (1-800-QUIT-NOW) first to get started, then you can let them know texting is the way you prefer to communicate.

Online

Use our online program in addition to the phone, or you can choose the online-only program. Through the online program you’ll get education materials, quit planning and quit tracking — plus the support of a community of others learning to live tobacco-free. And we’re still available through online chat if you want to talk to a coach.

 Click here to start online.

Call

Just pick up the phone to connect with a quit coach today. We’ll help you understand your addiction, develop a plan to quit your way, offer support, and get you started with free medications like patches, gum or lozenges.

Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW to get started today. 

Additional Support to Quit using Menthol Products

When menthol is added to tobacco and nicotine products, it makes it easier to become addicted and harder to quit. That’s why the Colorado Quitline offers the following incentives for individuals who use these products:

  • Up to $50 in gift cards when you complete three phone calls with Colorado Quitline coaches
  • As many as 16 weeks of free nicotine replacement products when you order through a coach and up to 12 weeks of free nicotine replacement products when you order online. (A potential savings of up to $1,395 vs purchasing your own nicotine replacement products!)

Visit the Colorado Quitline or call 1-800-QUIT-NOW to get started.
