We support smokers with weekly tips and a check-in tool and offer a Program Enhancement Guide for tobacco cessation professionals.

Weekly Practices

An affirmation is positive messaging that you can repeat to yourself during times of internal crisis. Repeat these mini mantras to yourself to help react and manage cravings when they inevitably strike.
Quit SMART Feature
Goals are essential to a successful quit. When you know where you’re going, the way becomes clear. This Monday, we’ve got five easy tips to help you quit smoking.
There’s no doubt, quitting smoking is hard, particularly in a social setting. Make this Monday about being prepared to face your social triggers to make it easier.
Smoking weakens the body’s immune system, making it harder to battle gum infection. A smoker has twice the risk for gum disease compared to a nonsmoker.
Low-intensity physical exercise like yoga, dancing, or weight training can be powerful tools to manage quit-related stress.
Strong Lungs Feature
Smoking tobacco damages the lungs, but when you quit, you give your lungs a chance to recover. In a few weeks you’ll start breathing better, wheezing less, and feeling stronger.
When it comes to cigarettes, use your diet as another way to help you quit. This Monday, we share four foods that taste good and actually have the power to discourage you from smoking.
Prepare yourself for all the physical symptoms you’ll experience when you stop smoking cigarettes — the good, the bad, and the jitters.
