Quit with Us, LA Brand Receives Update to Make the Tobacco Quit Journey Even Easier
Tobacco users now have a new, easy-to-use, and encouraging Quit With Us, Louisiana website at quitwithusla.org to help them quit, thanks to the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living and Well-Ahead Louisiana.
“With this brand refresh, we are letting those who wish to quit smoking know that we understand the only thing more powerful than the difficulty of quitting tobacco is the decision to try to quit,” said Chrishelle Stipe, Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living cessation manager. “We are here to guide and empower those who want to quit and ensure our resources are as easy to access as possible, just in time for New Year’s resolutions.”
The new website features three sections, depending on where tobacco users are in their quit journey. They can prepare to quit, take action when they are ready to quit, or learn how to maintain once they have quit tobacco.
“We just completed a research study that found that 74 percent of tobacco users in Louisiana want to quit, and most users make more than one quit attempt,” said Melissa Martin, director of Well-Ahead Louisiana. “The ease of the new website and tools like Text-to-Quit let residents who want to quit know that we are here to help and coach them through the moments that feel impossible.”
Louisianans interested in quitting tobacco can visit www.QuitWithUsLa.org or call 1-800-Quit-Now to connect with a quit coach and create a personalized Quit Plan. Coaches are available 24/7, seven days a week. Quit With Us, Louisiana also provides counseling services over the phone, via text, through an app, or on the website chatbox. Quit Coaches can also provide cessation medication and make recommendations on what prescription medications participants can review with their doctor.
