Quitting tobacco isn’t easy. In fact, the tobacco industry makes sure of it. They actively target people living with disabilities to sell their addictive products as a form of stress relief. They want to make them tobacco customers for life. That’s a big reason why people living with disabilities and those who care for them smoke and use tobacco at higher rates.

But the disability community is stronger than Big Tobacco companies!

With the support of the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line, people living with disabilities, caregivers and support providers can receive FREE counseling, support and quit smoking medications (patches and gum) to successfully quit tobacco for good.
