Reducing Racial Disparities
Addressing Extreme Prematurity
Eliminating Sleep-Related Deaths
Exposure to cigarette smoke and tobacco products puts babies at risk. At First Year Cleveland, we encourage expectant parents, parents and loved ones to quit smoking. Ohio Tobacco Quit Line can help.
Babies who are subjected to secondhand smoke are more likely to develop health problems and suffer sleep-related deaths than babies who are not.
For this reason, FYC Action Team 10 is working to ensure parents, caregivers and loved ones are connected to the right resources to help them quit smoking.
One such resource is the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line (1-800-784-8669).
The Ohio Tobacco Quit Line is a statewide service that helps tobacco users deal with the emotional, behavioral and physical challenges that come with quitting. The Quit Line serves nearly 450 people every day and provides the following types of FREE support:
The Quit Line provides different types of programs, which are designed with the needs and communication styles of those who are trying to quit tobacco in mind. The Quit Line programs include:
Quit Line coaches are available to provide support and guidance to those who are undergoing the quitting process 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Nicotine quit medications, which are free for up to four weeks, are available to certain program participants, and are conveniently delivered right to their homes.
The Ohio Tobacco Quit Line makes the quitting process easier and more effective for caregivers who use tobacco — and this leads to their babies living longer, healthier lives.
