The Tobacco Cessation Resources Guide [PDF 519KB] is a comprehensive list of available resources and programs for those thinking about quitting and those ready to quit. Add your local program information in the fillable box at the bottom of the guide to customize the Resource Guide for your installation before providing it to your patients or beneficiaries.
If you don’t have a local program to add, or wish not to include it, use this version of the Tobacco Cessation Resources Guide [PDF 433KB] instead.
Download fact sheets, posters and infographics on tobacco-related topics such as supporting a battle buddy during their quit, managing weight gain without tobacco and knowing the facts about e-cigs and vapes. Check out these materials on the Resources for Quitting Tobacco section of this website and share them with your patients during their quit!
Patients can’t always reach you on the phone or come see you every time they need support, but our 24/7 Quit Tobacco Live Chat coaches are available to help anytime, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The coaches privately answer questions and provide support for anyone quitting or contemplating quitting.
Your patients can start chatting on any YouCanQuit2 page, using the “Live Chat” bar in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Encourage your patients to check out the YouCanQuit2 “How to Quit” section for helpful resources to use during each stage of the quit process. Also, you can direct your patients to the “Preparing to Quit” section of the YouCanQuit2 website for information on nicotine and non-nicotine medications.
Encourage your patients to use the Savings Calculator to find out how much they’ll save after quitting tobacco. Extra money in their pockets might just mean extra motivation to quit!
