Help for smokers calling quit line from a land line

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you're concerned about the federal tax increase on cigarettes from 30 cents a pack to more than $1, you may be calling for help like so many others who would rather quit than pay more for nicotine. 

This is no time to add to your frustration with trouble getting through to the quit line.  The American Cancer Society has come up with a clever way to remember that number.  It is 1-877-YES-QUIT.  However, there is a problem.  That spelling out of "QUIT" only works on your cell phone where the "Q" is a 7.  If you call from a dial tone phone, the "Q" is a "0", and you'll get someone who doesn't care if you smoke or not.

So, if you are calling from a landline, call 1-877-937-7848 and good luck!
