How effective is it?

Based on extensive research from the US Clinical Practice Guidelines*, the evidence shows that QuitLines significantly increase quit rates when compared to minimal or no counselling interventions. Further, the addition of quitline counselling with quit smoking medications significantly improves quit rates compared to medication alone.
