What is a Quit Coach?

Phone coaches are trained specialists who can help you reach your quit goals. A Quit Coach will help you define your goals, identify strengths and stumbling blocks, and address obstacles.

You schedule calls with your Quit Coach at times that work best for you.

Why Coaching Works

  • Coaching is a partnership
  • Coaches listen – they don’t lecture
  • A Quit Coach can make it easier to be successful by helping you sort out priorities
  • Coaches help you stay accountable with support and guidance
  • You are 2X more likely to quit and stay quit if you have a coach
