Telephone based quitting resources increase quitting success rates.



Most quitlines provide access to counselling, and callers to quitlines who receive call-back counselling appear to benefit from more frequent contact. Pooled data suggests a significant benefit from additional proactive telephone calls for callers to quitlines and of proactive telephone counselling for smokers not calling quitlines. Quitlines also can provide or refer smokers to other treatments that are effective (e.g. nicotine replacement therapy).
