Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published a booklet that commemorates the 15th anniversary of the National Network of State Quitlines. The booklet describes the history of quitlines in the U.S. and shares progress and successes.

Over the past 15 years, millions of people throughout the country have called quitlines, with many of these callers receiving coaching and cessation medications and going on to quit smoking. By helping people quit smoking, quitlines have saved lives.
