Meet Our Quit Coaches

Here’s what a few of our Quit Coaches have to say about what motivates them to help people quit.

Michelle

6 years coaching

When I was going through treatment, I hated the word ‘failure.’

Because when you quit something, it’s progress. It’s something you continue to do every day. You may have made this attempt to change, and maybe you fell down. But if you want to get back up, I’ll help you. If you want to try again, I’ll help you.

Frances

2 years coaching

I smoked on and off for 32 years.

At first it was social smoking—my friends were smoking and I wanted to be like my friends. Fairly quickly it became a habit in its own right. I used to say it took two things to start my car: I had to turn the key in the ignition and I had to light a cigarette.

Maria

3 years coaching

Tobacco is something that’s been a friend, a confidant—the thing that was relied on most.

When people call in to the ASHLine, I recognize the relationship they had with smoking, and the cigarette, because their motivation has to be about their decision to quit.
