Quitting Is Personal

Let’s be real. You know smoking is bad for your health, but that hasn’t motivated you to quit. The only incentives that will get you started and help you successfully quit smoking are personal, like these:

  • I want a healthy heart, so I can be active: run, ride a bike and play with my kids.
  • I don’t want to hurt the people I love with secondhand smoke.
  • I want to save money ($2,000/year for a one-pack-a-day smoker) and use that money to travel the world or add to my kids’ college funds.
  • I want my breath to smell fresh.
  • I don’t want to miss out on interesting conversations and fun times with my family and friends while I’m out having a “smoke break”.

The Quit for Life program helps you identify your “whys” and use them to help you quit for good. The Bledsoe Health Trust provides the program free to all active participants, spouses and dependents (age 18 and older). It offers many kinds of support to help you quit tobacco, including coaching, printed and online resources and a supportive, online community made up of people like you.

You’ll get advice on which type, dose, and duration of nicotine substitute or medication is right for you, and how to use it so it really works. Your Health Plan also covers medications for tobacco cessation, such as Bupropion, Zyban and Chantix, if medically appropriate.

Get started now by calling 1-866-QUIT-4-L IFE (866-784-8454, toll-free) to enroll or learn more.
