What is a Quit Coach?
A Quit Coach is someone (abest friend, an elder, a co-worker) who can help you on your quit journey. They can be someone you call to go for walk when you feel like using tobacco, someone who helps you determine the best choice of quit aid and someone you can talk to as you quit. A Quit Coach may be your best friend, an Elder, a co-worker who has also quit, your spouse or common law or a community health worker. They can be anyone you know you can count on as you go through the process of quitting!
