Healthy Lifestyle Coaching Tobacco Free
You can do it! You can quit tobacco for good. Get started with a coach today — for free.

Call 1-866-213-0153

Your wellness coach is there for you every step of the way and will help you:

  • Work on successful quitting strategies
  • Recognize and manage your triggers for tobacco use
  • Find healthy alternatives to replace the feeling you get from smoking
  • Quit tobacco and feel more energized and healthy

What makes the program work?
Simply put: You're not in it alone. We're here to support you.
That's the beauty of Healthy Lifestyle Coaching Tobacco Free.
The program offers a unique combination of coaching and tools that can empower you to quit.

It's in the coaching
A wellness coach is there to guide and support you:

  • Arming you with the information and techniques that will help you succeed
  • Inspiring and empowering you along your path to wellness.

Our coaches have at least 3 years of coaching experience. And all are certified tobacco cessation specialists.

Individual or group coaching options
You decide if you'd like to work with a coach one-to-one, or in a group setting. Or you can choose to do both.

Each has its advantages:

  • Individual coaching — personalized attention, focused squarely on your needs, your obstacles, your strengths
  • Group coaching — peer support and inspiration, as you surround yourself with people who are committed to quitting

Extra rewards to get you started
Free 8-week supply of nicotine replacement therapy is yours for completing 3 sessions with a coach. Or you can choose a $25 Corporate Rewards gift card instead. At your 6-month coaching session, you will earn a $25 gift card.

Other advantages
Work with your coach how and where it works best for you.

You can:

  • Call your coach — even if you aren't scheduled for a session
  • Chat with your coach by phone or e-mail

You also get:

  • Easy access to 24/7 online peer support (moderated by a wellness coach)
  • Complete privacy — personal information about you or your coaching sessions stays between you and your coach
  • Extra support to address personal concerns, like maintaining weight and managing your stress
  • Online wellness programs to enhance your coaching sessions
  • Materials that reinforce the healthy habits you're learning and developing
