This program offers help if you're ready to quit smoking or using tobacco. It can also support you in making lasting changes that promote tobacco-free living where you live, work, and play.
Live Tobacco-Free Austin
The initiative is housed within Austin Public Health. Its goal is to decrease tobacco use and the number of people exposed to second-hand smoke, and increase access to resources for those trying to quit tobacco.
Significant gaps exist among resistant and hard-to-reach populations in our community. Teens and young adults are especially susceptible to social influences, advertising and marketing. SmokefreeTXT is a free mobile text messaging service for adults and young adults who are trying to quit smoking. The goal of the program is to provide 24/7 encouragement, advice, and tips to help smokers quit smoking, and stay quit. The project uses a variety of strategies to reach this population.
