The California Smokers’ Helpline (1-800-NO-BUTTS) is a free statewide quit smoking service operated by the University of California San Diego's Moore's Cancer Center. The Helpline offers self-help materials, referral to local programs, and one-on-one, telephone counseling to quit smoking. Helpline services have been proven in clinical trials to double a smoker’s chances of successfully quitting.
Services are available in six languages (English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, and Vietnamese) and specialized services are also available for teens, pregnant women, and tobacco chewers. The Helpline also provides information to friends and family members of tobacco users.
The Helpline works closely with organizations and health care providers statewide in pursuit of the shared goal of creating a healthier California.
