Great American Smokeout November 19

The Great American Smokeout on November 19 is recognized by the American Cancer Society as the day to take the first steps in quitting smoking. Kicking the habit is tough, whether you’re smoking, chewing or vaping. But doing so will help you improve your overall health, reduce your risk for cancer, and prolong your life; allowing you to create more memories with family and friends. The Great American Smokeout is not meant to make you quit tobacco that day specifically; rather, it is to provide resources to start your journey in living a tobacco-free life.

Check out the many resources available through the American Cancer Society to help you quit smoking, including information on the benefits of quitting and how to stay tobacco free after you quit. StayWell also offers free health coaching for tobacco cessation for those who are enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program. There are three ways to connect:

  1. Call 1-800-821-6591 to talk with a coach or schedule your first phone session.
  2. Schedule your first virtual meeting (video chat) on StayWell or the app.
  3. Send a question via Coach Chat on StayWell or the app.

We hope you recognize November 19 as the day to take your first step towards eliminating tobacco from your life!
