How does Stop-Smoking Support work?
Once you are enrolled, your Quit Coaches will help you develop a personalized quit plan. The Quit Coaches will also determine whether nicotine patches, gum, or prescription medication will be helpful for you during the quit process.
You receive a series of self-paced Quit Guides to implement your personal quit plan (with guidance from the Quit Coach).
Do I have to attend classes?
No. All of your coaching sessions take place over the telephone. This means you don’t have to try to find time for classes or trips to someone’s office. And, you can talk to a Quit Coach any day of the week - even Saturday or Sunday.

How long does the program last?

What if I don’t have an email address?
Participants will need an email address to experience the benefits of Web Coach. If you have internet access, consider setting up a free email account using a service like Hotmail or Google Mail. If you choose to not use Web Coach, or do not have internet access, you will still benefit greatly from taking all calls with your Quit Coach.
What if I miss my phone call from the Quit Coach?
Please call our toll-free support line back at a convenient time for you. Studies have shown that the more calls you complete with a Quit Coach, the more success you will have in quitting tobacco.
What if I start using tobacco again?
For most people, quitting takes practice. We’re not here to judge you if you slip. Instead we’re here to help you learn from that experience and try again. Each time you try to quit, you’ll learn a little more about what it takes. You’ll learn what works and what doesn’t, and you’ll use that knowledge in your next attempt. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
