Tobacco is one of the toughest addictions there is - and one of the deadliest. Healthy Community Coalition is committed to offering support and assistance to anyone in our community looking for support in quitting tobacco or staying away from it so you never start. Below is some information on tobacco - how it impacts you, your health, and your family, and ways to quit.
For assistance in quitting, call the Maine Tobacco Helpline at 1-800-207-1230 for free, confidential support by phone for smokers who want to quit.
