Resources to help you quit

If you're tired of being captive to nicotine, we can help you break free.

Quitting tobacco of any sort takes a commitment. And keeping your commitment can be challenging if you're trying to do it on your own. So we suggest you don't. Research shows that counseling or support in combination with medication (nicotine replacement and/or prescription medication) offers the best shot at breaking free from tobacco.

Whether you've smoked for six months or 16 years, we've got someone you can partner with to help you be successful. It's up to you to find what works for you – telephone counseling or coaching, nicotine replacement therapy, a class. Take stock of your temperament – and then take the next step. All of these resources are available at no cost to you as a Providence Health Plan member:
