For Smoking Cessation Programs

Overview

Quit and Stay Quit Monday (QSQM) offers free evidence-based resources for tobacco cessation professionals to supplement existing programs or use as a stand-alone tool for smokers. The concept is simple: Encourage smokers to quit on Monday, then use every Monday thereafter to recommit to their quit, celebrate progress and quit again if they relapse.

Quit & Stay Quit Monday Tools

The materials below provide all the elements needed to leverage QSQM in your program – an introductory video and handout, a Monday Check-in tool and weekly graphic tips to engage people every week.  All materials are vetted by The Institute for Global Tobacco Control at Johns Hopkins University and based on their research on the Monday “fresh start” mindset and weekly patterns in tobacco cessation behavior.

If you have questions or would like to learn about how you can partner with us on a pilot, please contact us by filling out this brief form.
