Let’s face it, taking your life back from smoking is hard. But with help, you can be empowered to quit smoking for good.
American Cancer Society researchers developed Empowered to Quit, an email-based program to help you quit smoking. It all starts with making the decision to quit and planning your Quit Day.
You can set it as soon as tomorrow or up to 30 days from now. Be sure to give yourself enough time to come up with a quit plan, but not so much time that you’ll change your mind; it is best to pick a weekday that doesn’t look like it will be too stressful of a day. Let’s get started!
As your Quit Day gets closer, you can make your quit plan with the help of short emails from the American Cancer Society. Once your Quit Day arrives, you’ll continue to receive tailored emails and tools to support you along your quit journey.
Here are a few key reasons to quit from the 2020 U.S. Surgeon General’s Report:
It’s not too late to quit using tobacco. There are many health benefits of quitting nicotine. In fact, the sooner you quit smoking, the more you can reduce your chances of getting cancer and other diseases.
If you choose to empower yourself to quit smoking with this program, you’ll also be able to share information to help motivate others to stay away from tobacco or quit smoking for good! Our researchers will take what they learn from supporting you and use that information to make our Empowered to Quit program even more helpful.
