It's Quitting Time
Quit Week is back for the fourth straight year in North Dakota to encourage commercial tobacco and alternative nicotine product users to make June 11-17 their time to be Tobacco Free in 2023.
Those using commercial tobacco are more likely to successfully stop using when supported - whether by coaching or medication use. NDQuits can help develop a quit plan and provide resources to greatly improve a user's odds of success. Quit plans prepare those who use tobacco products to manage cravings and change routines to avoid triggers to become and stay tobacco-free. Click the Enroll links below to get started.
NDQuits serves more than 3,000 North Dakotans every year with a high success rate. We are the leading resource for North Dakotans seeking assistance to quit smoking or using smokeless tobacco products, including vapes or electronic cigarettes.
With NDQuits, you can begin a free program that can help you quit your way.
Over one third of former tobacco users we assist are still tobacco-free seven months after completing an NDQuits program. NDQuits employs cessation coaches who support individuals on their pathway to quitting. Learn about our coaches, a typical journey with NDQuits, and more on how to Quit Your Way.
NDQuits provides educational materials for healthcare professionals to share with patients, such as posters for waiting rooms, brochures, palm cards, and wallet cards.
Our mission is to improve and protect the health of North Dakotans by reducing the negative health and economic consequences of the state's number-one cause of preventable disease and death – tobacco use.

- Preventing initiation among youth and young adults.
- Promoting quitting among adults and youth.
- Eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke.
- Identifying and eliminating tobacco-related disparities among specific population groups.
