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

A lot can happen during that first 24 hours without a cigarette. Knowing what to expect — both the pleasant health benefits and the unpleasant withdrawals — can help you persevere and overcome the habit.
The American Cancer Society’s annual Great American Smokeout encourages people from across the country to take a step toward a smoke-free life, but as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, the need for tobacco cessation is greater now than ever before.
Improve your chances of quitting by focusing your energy on the reasons why you are quitting. This Monday, make a list of the motivating factors that are driving you to quit smoking.
Few things in life are free and cigarettes are definitely not one of them. Smoking is the act of burning money. Literally. A smoking habit is a costly habit. How costly? Well, let’s have a look.
Cigarette smoking is a big financial expense, but it is also a big time-waster. Do you know how many hours do you actually spending smoking cigarettes each week? The number may surprise you.
Quit Belly Breathing Feature
Deep breathing can be a dependable method to control stress and nicotine cravings. Take a deep breath to reset and renew your efforts to quit on Monday.
Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRTs) are effective tools that can help reduce withdrawal feelings by giving you a small controlled dose of nicotine. Research shows that NRTs are safe and that they can dramatically increase your chances of a sustained quit.
Even if you’ve slipped up once or twice over the course of the month, you’ve still made monumental progress — and now it’s time to reap the rewards.

Success Stories

To reach its Native American and Spanish-speaking residents, the Pima County Health Department tasked Quit and Stay Quit Monday to provide 12-weeks of specialized smoking cessation materials.
The "Quit Now West Virginia" campaign applied the Quit & Stay Quit Monday concept, and designed a multi-pronged approach modeled after prior state-wide QSQM campaigns, like Virginia Department of Health’s program.
The partnership between QSQM and CEASE is an important one because it shows how wellness programs can be enhanced and embellished through the adoption of the Monday Refresh or weekly cue to recommit to your goal.
