Text services

Motivational quit messages sent right to your mobile device.

Our text service is a free 3-month program designed for those who are ready to set a quit date within the next 30 days, or have already quit within the last 30 days. Text messages tailored to your quit date provide tips, advice and encouragement to help you quit smoking and stay on track.

Those who are thinking about quitting, but not ready to set a quit date, can sign up for a 3-week program to receive daily messages that will explore your uncertainty about quitting and motivate you to take the next step.  

Once registered, try our new Text-to-Chat feature for real-time, personalized help from our Quit Coaches. Simply text CHAT for help to plan your quit, stay motivated and overcome challenges.
