The Hawaii Tobacco Quitline programs (phone and online) provide personalized help for Hawaii's smokers, families and loved ones of tobacco users, and healthcare professionals who may want specific information on quit-smoking medications and services available to help their patients quit. All phone and online participants receive information and materials – and some may be referred to additional cessation groups or related programs in their local communities if they are interested in connecting with other tobacco users in a small, confidential setting.Specially trained Quitline Coaches work with individuals one-on-one to develop Quit Plans that are custom made to fit their lifestyle and needs. Plans include identifying triggers to smoking, real-world ideas on how to deal with cravings and sincere support as participants move through the program toward their goals. "The Quitline has been a great success here in Hawaii. We hope that the addition of the new Online Coaching program will make it even more convenient for more of Hawaii's smokers to give the Quitline a try!" said Valerie Smalley, Quitline Coach for 8 Years.
