Quit Week is back for the fifth straight year in North Dakota to encourage commercial tobacco and alternative nicotine product users to make June 9-15 their time to quit. 

Tobacco Free North Dakota and treatment partners of North Dakota Health and Human Services encourage all cigarette, smokeless tobacco, e-cigarette or vape, or nicotine pouch users in North Dakota to set a quit date.

Those using commercial tobacco are more likely to successfully stop using when supported - whether by coaching or medication use. Entities like healthcare providers, pharmacists, NDQuits, or local public health units 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.

NDQuits provides additional support through personal coaching and nicotine replacement therapy medication. Free nicotine patches, nicotine gum, or nicotine lozenges are provided to qualified enrollees. Connect with NDQuits at or 1-800-QUIT-NOW.

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.
