Ready to quit tobacco?

Here are a few tips to help you along the way:

 Call the toll-free South Dakota QuitLine
   at 1-866-SD-Quits (1-866-737-8487). 

• Coaching assistance available:
   7 AM - 11 PM, Monday - Friday
   8 AM - 5 PM, Saturday        

 List your reasons to quit. Keep them
   in mind to make it through tough times.

 Build a Quit Team: your friends, family,
   doctor and dentist. Let them know you're
   quitting so they can support you.

 Set a Quit Date. Mark a date on your calendar
   no more than two weeks from when you decide
   you're ready.
