@Josue Perez  wrote a story that published today about the new National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number. Read about it here. It's a good thing, as the current number for the Lifeline is quite lengthy (it's being changed to 988). 

But with that, some area codes are affected. The 970 area code is one of them. Essentially, moving forward, folks dialing within that area code (and several others around the country) will have to dial all 10 digits rather than just the seven. 

I've been on a cell phone forever, and I've moved around a lot. I haven't owned a house phone once in my adult life, so I've always been accustomed to dialing 10 digits. Do any of you dial without the area code? And will the change be tough for you?
