Help by Phone 1 877 513-5333
You want to quit – we can help. The job of every Smokers’ Helpline Quit Coach is to work one-on-one to help create a quit plan that works for you. We’ll talk about things like managing cravings, quit aids, help you find local support, and we’ll even call you to follow up if you want. The result? Smokers’ Helpline phone clients are up to 8 times more likely to be smoke-free after 6 months than quitters who go it alone. Call a Quit Coach at Smokers' Helpline whether you are thinking about quitting, ready to quit, actively quitting, need help staying smoke-free, not ready to quit or want to help someone else quit.
Service is available in English and French and, in Ontario, over 100 languages through an interpreter.
