Tobacco Cessation

You can be tobacco-free.

Nearly all tobacco users want to quit. We know it's not easy. That's why we provide support that is proven to help on this journey.

Your life will be better in so many ways:

  • Feel healthier and stronger. Cough less.
  • Free up money and time for other things.
  • Encourage your kids not to smoke.
  • Keep those around you healthier — including your baby if you are pregnant.
  • You have your own reasons. When you’re ready, we’re here to help.

Succeed with coaching and support

Whenever you’re ready, you can talk to a coach about becoming tobacco-free. We cover counseling in person and by phone. Your primary care clinic or local mental health clinic may offer in-office counselors. They can help you set goals and make plans to quit tobacco. We also cover telephone counseling like the Oregon Tobacco Quit Line.

There’s no judgment, no pressure to quit, just people who care and want to help you. Friendly staff share real-life tips and advice about what works. You can also connect with others walking the same path. And the best part is, people who use a counseling program have more success than people who don’t.

Want to talk? Call 800-QUIT-NOW. You can also visit or talk to your primary care provider.

Medical therapy helps many

Overcoming cravings is a big concern for people who want to stop smoking. These methods help curb cravings. We cover them at no cost to members.

  • Nicotine replacement: In the form of patches, gum, inhaler or spray, slowly reduce the dose instead of going cold turkey.
  • Medications: Buproprion and Chantix help fight cravings and help people feel calmer as nicotine is reduced.

Together, these can help ease your way to being tobacco-free. Interested? Talk to the staff at your clinic to learn more about medical help to quit using tobacco.
