The My Life, MY Quit service
Kentucky's Department of Public Health is launching a free service to help teens in the Commonwealth stop vaping.
The My Life, MY Quit service is available beginning today and will also help teens quit smoking and using other tobacco products.
Each teen can get five sessions of support through texting, phone calls, or online chat.
Teenagers who want to stop using e-cigarettes or other tobacco products can text or call the toll-free My Life, My Quit number: 1-855-891-9989. They will then be connected to a “quit coach” who will provide, free, confidential, real-time support. Each teen can get five sessions of personalized support through live texting, phone, or online chat. The hotline is operated by National Jewish Health.
The quit coach will help them develop strategies to cope with stress, address symptoms of withdrawal, and navigate social situations.
