Proven to Help

Can you quit on your own? Sure. But studies show that working with a Kick It California Quit Coach can double 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.

1. Set Your Quit Date

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.

2. Identify Your Triggers

Triggers are people, places, or situations that make you want to smoke (for instance, smoking on work breaks). The more you understand these triggers, the easier it is to deal with them. So it’s important to figure out what your personal triggers are.

3. Make a Plan

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 will work for you.
