Make Monday Your Day to Quit… and Stay Quit

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

Weekly Practices

Since our cell phones are almost always at our sides, downloading a tobacco cessation app is a convenient way to find support and stay connected with other smokers going through similar experiences.
The mere act of holding something in your hand will not only take your mind off smoking, but can actually physically prevent you from picking up a cigarette. This Monday, instead of reaching for cigarettes, make a plan for your hands.
You've stuck to your quit, so it's time to treat yourself. Sure, the pandemic has limited what you can do, but there are still a number of ways to feel pampered that are safe and socially distanced.
There’s an abundance of online tobacco cessation groups available to help support your quit. Online “quit” groups are not the same as in-person counseling, but they do come with their own set of unique benefits.
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.

Although there’s no direct evidence connecting cigarette smoking with an increased likelihood of contracting COVID-19, people with a history of cigarette use are at a higher risk of developing serious respiratory illnesses.
