In December 2012, The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene announced the addition of new tobacco counseling services to the Maryland Tobacco Quitline, 1-800-QUIT-NOW. The Quitline has provided free tobacco cessation counseling and nicotine replacement therapy to over 100,000 residents in Maryland with a 97% satisfaction rate since its establishment in 2006. The new services now offered by the Maryland Tobacco Quitline include counselors available live 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, counseling services for teens, more support from Web Coach online at https://www.quitnow.net/Maryland, and a new text support system called Text2Quit. The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene timed the release of these new tobacco counseling services to coincide with the New Year holiday to help spark smokers’ motivation to quit as part of their New Year’s resolutions.
