Our Mission is to improve and protect the health of North Dakotans by reducing the negative health and economic consequences of the state's number-one cause of preventable disease and death --- tobacco use.

Our Goal is to reduce disease, disability and death related to tobacco use by:
- Preventing initiation among youth and young adults
- Promoting quitting among adults and youth
- Eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke
- Identifying and eliminating tobacco-related disparities among specific population groups

On December 6, 2012, ALL North Dakota worksites become smoke free. There is no better time to quit tobacco. NDQuits offers users the option of using telephone, online or mobile services. Enrollees can use one of the options or all of them in combination - whatever works for you.

Enrollees receive the following:
  - Professional counseling and advice
  - 24/7/365 support from other quitters around the world
  - QuitTips e-mail messages and access to recorded messages that help the quit process
  - Online calculators that help tobacco users figure how much money they've saved or how many days they've added to their life
  - Free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges to help with quitting (for qualified enrollees)
