How Do I Get Started

Quitting tobacco is a process. The first step is the hardest. When you are ready to quit, 802Quits can help you with each step in the quitting process.

The Program

The 802Quits is a FREE online service available to Vermont residents 13 years of age and over. When you become a member, you get special tools, a support team of coaches, research-based information, and a community of others trying to become tobacco free. Our expert coaches can talk to you about overcoming common barriers, such as dealing with stress, fighting cravings, coping with irritability, and controlling weight gain.

We also offer a free telephone service, so you can speak to a coach in person, if you would prefer. Through the telephone program you can receive a supply of patches too. Call the Quit by Phone program at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or 1-800-784-8669 or request a call by completing the Call Me Back form.

How do I enroll in the online program only?

Complete the brief Enroll Now form. If you are a Vermont resident over 15 years of age, you will receive an email letting you know that you are enrolled. You can use the online service as often as you want!

To be eligible for the additional benefit of dual use nicotine replacement therapy, such as using the nicotine gum while wearing a nicotine patch, you must enroll in the phone program. Only single use therapy is available through the online-only program.

How do I enroll in both the online and telephone program?

Complete the brief Enroll Now form. If you qualify, you will receive an email letting you know that you are enrolled. You can use the online service as often as you want!

While completing the Enroll Now form you indicate the best time for a coach to give you a call. If you would like, you can call the Quit by Phone program at 1-800-QUIT-NOW. When you speak with your coach we will begin your coaching program, and see if you are eligible for nicotine patches or gum. You may be eligible for the additional benefit of dual use nicotine replacement therapy, such as using the nicotine gum while wearing a nicotine patch.

We're here 7 days a week/24 hours a day.
