​​​Truth Initiative

The Truth Initiative has created the first-of-its-kind text program for youth to quit vaping called This is Quitting. Youth, or concerned parents of youth who vape, can text the line to receive information on how to quit vaping and set a quit date.

Text “DITCHJUUL" to 88709 for youth and young adults trying to quit e-cigarettes

Text “QUIT" to 202-899-7550 if you are a parent or other adult looking to help young people quit
