Get Help Quitting

There are many things you can do to improve your chances of success. Working with a Vermont Quit Partner or Quitline Coach increases your chances of successfully quitting, especially when combined with quit medications. That’s why each quit program offers FREE patches, gum and lozenges. If you’ve tried an approach in the past that didn’t work, consider trying another.

Are you wondering which form of additional support is right for you? Here’s what you can expect from each type of quit help.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Work with experienced and understanding Quitline Coaches over the phone, with the option to receive additional support via email, text, or instant message.

A coach will support you during your quitting process and work with you to help deal with challenges.

Quitline Coaches are available 24/7, including holidays.

Local group meetings at locations across the state led by Vermont Quit Partners.

Vermont Quit Partners provide support for you in a small group of others trying to quit, too.

Group meetings at worksites or specific locations available upon request. One-to-one counseling available in some communities.

Quit on your own without a coach by using online materials and quit progress tracking tools accessed through the 802Quits web portal, available 24/7.

Note, however, that working with a coach and using quit medications increases your chances of quitting.
