Tobacco Cessation

 

Health Advocate offers a tobacco cessation program, which provides you with 12 weeks of unlimited access to your own personal Coach, who can help you set up your own quit plan. Whether you smoke cigarettes, use smokeless tobacco or another tobacco product, you will receive professional support and a personalized plan that's right for you.  

How Does the Program Work?

The 12-week Tobacco Cessation Program consists of 8 weeks of intensive personal tobacco coaching followed by 4 weeks of maintenance.  Working with a coach has been shown to increase the likelihood that tobacco users quit and stay quit. You and your coach will have weekly calls to discuss your tobacco history, tackle your triggers, find workable solutions to curb cravings and develop a quit plan. Each week you will learn tips to help you quit, track your tobacco usage, identify your triggers and apply new healthy behaviors.

You can begin your plan by contacting your coach through phone or email. Health Advocate can be reached at 1-866-799-2728 or [email protected]
