Here are some resources for tobacco and vaping cessation:

  • Georgia Department of Public Health Quit Line (ages 13 years and older):
  • Juul cessation texting program for youth from the Truth Initiative®:

This innovative and free text message program was created with input from teens, college students and young adults who have attempted to, or successfully, quit e-cigarettes.

The program is tailored by age group to give teens and young adults appropriate recommendations about quitting. The program will also serve as a resource for parents looking to help their children who now vape.

Youth and young adults can access the new e-cigarette quit program by texting "DITCHJUUL" to 88709. Parents and other adults looking to help young people quit should text "QUIT" to (202) 899-7550.
