Frequently Asked Questions

Can adolescents call the Quit Line?
  • Yes, adolescents are welcome to call the Quit Line. The FDA has not approved NRT for persons under 18 so they are not eligible for that benefit.
Do I need a 406 area code to use the Montana Tobacco Quit Line?
  • Yes or you can call 1-866-485-7848
Is the number of calls limited to five per individual?

Individuals who relapse are also encouraged to call the Quit Line. Studies show that individuals will quit several times before they stay quit.
How does the Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) get to the individual?
