We began running our new smoking cessation TV ad’s this month in targeted markets. They use a “call to action” format and encourage smokers to call a phone number (the ASHline http://www.ashline.org/ 1-800-55-66-222) to get help- including free nicotine patches, gum and lozenges. When the first ad started running, the quitline was swamped with calls. By the way- this tobacco prevention program (including the ad placements) are paid with a voter-protected tobacco tax that’s earmarked specifically for tobacco prevention activities.
