Success of Striving to Quit
The Striving to Quit program continues to succeed in providing quit tobacco support to those that need it the most. This video details the stories of Roosevelt and Chris. Both are homeless and have dramatically decreased their tobacco use thanks to help from Striving to Quit. Over the course of four minutes, Chris and Roosevelt discuss their journey as well as the unique quitting challenges faced by homeless individuals.
While enrollment to Striving to Quit is closed, free help is still available through the Quit Line at 1-800-QUIT NOW. Pregnant Wisconsin women who smoke can also receive assistance through First Breath.
