Indiana Tobacco QuitLine

Here in Indiana, fewer Hoosiers are smoking than ever before. Our smoking rate has dropped from 25.6 percent in 2011 to 21.9 percent in 2013. That’s a huge gain, but we have a long way to go. Smoking kills approximately 9,700 Hoosiers and 480,000 Americans each year. For every smoking-related death, at least 30 Americans live with smoking-related illnesses.

We all know someone who smokes—a neighbor, a friend, ourselves. Free help to quit is available to all Hoosiers by calling 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669). Let’s help those we love gain their independence from tobacco and the harsh realities it causes.
