When you quit smoking and stay quit, you need all the support you can get. This Monday, we share online support options for your quit, connecting you with individuals at every stage of quit from all over the U.S. and Canada.
Part of quitting means doing things differently than before, like drinking coffee with a left hand instead of a right, not using the patio for smoking, and committing daily to quit and stay quit. Add this to your list of doing new things: online support.
When you log in and start to interact, a wealth of experience, tips, recommendations, help, and support will be available to you. You’ll find folks who are at every stage of quit: in the beginning, in the middle, have long since quit, or have relapsed. One of the best parts? All-access, all the time. When you experience triggers and cravings, someone who knows what it’s like is always available.
