Quit Medications

One of the reasons quitting tobacco is so difficult is because nicotine is highly addictive. When you quit tobacco, it is normal for your body to go through withdrawal symptoms that make you feel anxious, stressed, or sad. These symptoms are normal and temporary but they can still be uncomfortable.

There are many quit medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help manage these symptoms. Not everyone chooses to use quit medications but research shows they can double or triple your chances of quitting for good.


Quitline Coaching Support

Research shows people who use Quitline coaching services are more likely to be successful than people who choose online only options or try to quit on their own. By choosing a program that includes coaching, you’re one step closer to success.

Throughout your time with Quitline, your quit coach will contact you 4 times to check in. These calls can be used to discuss your quit plan, possible triggers, milestones, and slip ups. While every plan is customized, most calls last about 15-20 minutes and are scheduled every 1 to 2 weeks. You will also receive technology-based coaching support including email, text, and chat.

Our Quitline coaches are among the most experienced in the country. Every coach has a college degree or equivalent clinical experience and has completed thorough Quitline training. They are supportive, caring, and nonjudgmental—their biggest goal is to help you succeed in quitting!
