“I never would have quit without this program, thank you.” –Participant from Onslow County
“Thank you so much for what you guys do! I tell my friends who are still smoking that there’s a program out there that can support them if they ever want to quit. Making the decision to quit is the first step, but following through is sometimes the hardest part, and it’s so helpful to have that resource.” –Participant from Wake County
“My call with a coach made me realize what I’m capable of and gave me the mindset that I don’t need to smoke anymore. It really helped me to talk with you guys. I know I’m worth so much more now!” –Participant from Cherokee County
