New Year = New resolution to break the nicotine habit

By Gustavo Torrez

As we enter the New Year, we all know that more people search for resources to kick the nicotine habit.

So, I wanted to take a moment to share a couple excellent resources with you all:

First,

Becomeanex.org

The EX Plan is a free quit smoking program that helps you re-learn your life without cigarettes. Before you actually stop smoking, we’ll show you how to deal with the very things that trip up so many people when they try to quit smoking. So you’ll be more prepared to quit and stay quit.

Whether this is your first try at quitting or your 10th, the free EX Plan can help you really do it this time. LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PLAN

Second,

1-800-QUITNOW (1-800-784-8669)

Smoking cessation counselors from the National Cancer Institute are available to answer smoking-related questions in English or Spanish, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m

For more information about 1.800.Quit.Now visit smokefree.gov

While you are checking out these sites don’t forget to check out our site for some great resources compiled from the field. If you have some resources that we do not currently have or that may need to be updated send us an email.

Hope these resources help,

Gustavo

Program Manager
