Why is it so hard to quit?

Most pregnant women know they should stop for the health of their baby, but it’s really hard. Pregnant women metabolise nicotine up to 60% faster so quitting can be much harder. Smoking is also a habit. It’s been hard-wired into your brain and it’s triggered by events. Things getting stressful? Reach for a cigarette. First thing in the morning? Waiting for a bus? Your partner smoking? You may be addicted to nicotine, but your brain is addicted to these habit chains.

Our
solution:

  • Identify your smoking habits
  • Discover your triggers
  • Set your Quit Day
  • Beat the cravings
  • Stay quit for life
