Quit for Good

Tips for Quitting

Remember why you’re here. You’re going to be more successful at quitting if you create a plan. Here are some things you can add to your checklist to get started:

  1. Set a quit date.
  2. Get all tobacco products and anything related to tobacco, like lighters and ashtrays, out of your house.
  3. Take advantage of various quit medications. This includes nicotine patches, gum, and lozenges. These options can double your likelihood of successfully quitting.
  4. Write down the reasons why you are quitting.
  5. Learn to fight cravings.
    • We all know other smokers. Make an effort to avoid socializing when others are smoking since it will make you crave a cigarette even more.
    • Take tobacco out of your normal routine. We know it’s harder than it sounds, but your quit plan will help you plan how to make it happen.
    • Occupy your mouth. When a craving hits, use gum, mints, a straw, or a toothpick to occupy your mouth.
    • Picture it. Put a photo of what you're going to buy with your cigarette savings on your phone so that you're reminded of what you're working toward.
  6. Get support. That’s what we’re here for.

How Signing Up Works

Let us help you navigate the registration process. Whenever you’re ready, click the online or phone enrollment button and you will answer a few questions that will customize your quit plan to work best for you.

There is no cost to enroll and the program offers:

  1. 1-on-1 assistance from a quit coach when you need it
  2. Access to a private online community with others trying to quit
  3. A quit guide workbook
  4. 2 weeks of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products at no cost

You will have access to your quit coach via phone or text message, whichever works best for you.


Choosing Your Insurance:

If you enroll in the program with your insurance and the system tells you that your insurance doesn’t qualify, you should re-enroll and click that you do not have insurance. This will allow you to continue the process and you will still get access to all of the resources for free.


Paying for Services

As a Connecticut resident, your enrollment in cessation support services are either covered by your insurance or covered by the state. It’s free either way. You’ll NEVER be asked for a credit card or be sent a bill. Why is this free?
