Smoking Cessation

About this Program

You can quit smoking. We'll teach you how.

As part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our clients, LCS is partnered with the Delaware Quitline. If you’re ready to quit, we have advice and free quit-aid products available to help. In addition to the health benefits, the financial savings of a pack-a-day smoker in Delaware is approximately $2,500 per year.

What to Expect

Based on 25 years of research that has helped hundreds of thousands of smokers quit and stay quit, our Delaware Quitline and our Face-to-Face coaches will help you follow five steps to make your quit easier and more successful:

Step 1: Quit at your own pace
Step 2: Conquer your urges to smoke
Step 3: Use quit medicines
Step 4: Control your environment
Step 5: Get social support

Your coach will periodically check-in as you make your quitting journey.  They will be your resource for more information as you quit.

You will be provided with vouchers that can be redeemed at your local pharmacy. These vouchers can apply for quit assistance products, such as Nicotine Patches, Gum, and Lozenges, as well as a variety of prescriptions.  Ask your quit assistance coach for more information. 

If after 8 weeks you haven't been able to quit, don’t worry! You can renew any number of times until you succeed.
