The Hawaii Tobacco Quitline announces its new online coaching service. This service provides experienced web-based Quit Coaches and free nicotine patches and gum to help curb cravings. In addition, the coordinators provide interactive lessons, exercises and tracking tools, online discussion forums with Quit Coaches and others trying to quit, plus encouraging and educational emails and texts.
The Quitline’s new web-based program allows tobacco users to create an easy-to-follow quitting plan plus exclusive access to the online program without calls from a Quit Coach. Enrollment is confidential via the website, www.clearthesmoke.org. Each plan is personalized to every user’s specific needs. Nicotine patches or gum are mailed directly to each tobacco user’s home.
The Quitline will continue to provide free phone services through its 1-800-QUIT-NOW phone line, which includes a personalized quit plan with a trained phone-based Quit Coach and free nicotine patches or gum. All Quitline programs are free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, whether using the toll free phone number or the web-based program.
The Hawaii Tobacco Quitline has been helping residents of Hawaii quit smoking for almost a decade, helping over 63,000 local residents facing issues with tobacco.
