Quit smoking and vaping tools

Here's the truth: Quitting nicotine isn't easy, but it can be done with the right support. We know because we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people stop using commercial tobacco through proven-effective treatments and innovative and interactive tools. So if you or a loved one is ready to quit, there’s no better time than now.

This is Quitting

The youth e-cigarette use public health crisis created an urgent need for resources to help young people quit vaping. We filled that need by developing a first-of-its-kind program called This is Quitting. The free quit-vaping text messaging program is one of the few resources available designed specifically for teens and young adults. Schools, youth-serving organizations and state and local governments have partnered with This is Quitting to customize it for their unique populations.
