Can you quit on your own? Sure. But studies show that working with a Quit Coach can increase your chances of quitting. Our highly trained coaches will start by learning about your specific situation and then help guide you through the three key steps below.
How many times have you said “I’m going to quit” and then not gotten around to it? Setting an official Quit Date (with smaller goals along the way) helps your plan feel real and makes you more likely to follow through.
Triggers are people, places, or situations that make you want smokeless tobacco. Maybe you want to chew when you’re working, or maybe you have a dip in all day long. Either way, we’ll help you see what’s driving your cravings. Because the more you understand your triggers, the less power they’ll have over you.
Finally, you’ll need some ways to handle your triggers. That could be calling a friend, chewing gum, or reminding yourself why you want to quit. A Quit Coach will help you come up with strategies that work for you.
“I started smoking at 18. Years later, I started working in a sawmill, and couldn’t smoke, so I started using 1-2 cans of Copenhagen a day. I chewed for 10 years and went back to smoking. I’m now 5 months without tobacco thanks to Kick It California support.”
