Alabama Tobacco Quit Now Quit Line
Pregnant women pass any chemicals they take in (from food, tobacco, alcohol and so on) to their unborn children through the placenta. Women who smoke during pregnancy can slow down the baby’s growth by reducing the amount of oxygen and increasing the amount of carbon monoxide that the baby receives during a critical time when its brain and nervous system are developing. The Alabama Tobacco Quitline is a FREE telephone and online support service for any Alabamian who is ready to quit tobacco. Provide confidential information, referrals and support sessions designed on a schedule that is convenient to the caller. Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669) or visit www.alabamaquitnow.com
