Decide about medicines.
Quitting tobacco is hard. The good news is that there are medicines available today to help make your quit more effective. Talk to your Quit Coach™ about the pros and cons of medication like the nicotine patch, the nicotine lozenge, nicotine gum, nicotine inhaler, nasal sprays, and Buproprion SR.
Learn coping skills.
Breaking the cycle of addiction is tough. You have to cope with physical, psychological, and emotional challenges. Our coaches can help you develop skills to cope with these triggers.
Developing coping skills can make the difference between maintaining your quit or relapsing.
Choose your allies.
Allies are people who can help you quit. They can be anyone you like and trust, such as family members, friends or roommates. Allies can help you by listening when you want to talk, cheering you on, or even just calling to see how you’re doing.
