Why Take Control's Nicotine Program WORKS!

There are many ways to quit using nicotine, but people who work with Take Control health coaches have a greater chance of success. Here is why:
- We will help you address and neutralize negative feelings about addiction, and talk about the “bad” or “good” things associated with nicotine.
- We will help you understand the different layers of addiction, and make sure that you are heard, understood, and respected.
- Quitting can be overwhelming, so a slow approach is the most effective. We will take the time needed to discuss your fears, phobias, and present the facts.
- It is a fallacy that people who stop nicotine in any form (smokeless tobacco, smoking, vapes) will automatically gain weight. Often times movement can be the perfect substitute for a hit of nicotine. Focusing on quitting, while being coached and supported, is a successful way for healthy habits to crowd out the unhealthy.
- We provide education about different methods of quitting -- from “cold turkey” to “cutting back,” and an understanding of the use of medications, and/or combination of nicotine replacement therapy.
- We help you understand withdrawal – what to expect, how to cope with it, and strategies to stay successful.
- We conduct product-specific coaching: not all nicotine products are the same. Whether it’s smokeless tobacco, cigarettes, nicotine replacement therapy, vapes, or e-cigarettes, we coach you based on the product(s) you’re trying to quit, individualized to your unique situation.
- We provide a non-judgmental place to work through the addiction.
- We will help you recognize and fully understand where you stand with your nicotine use.
- We will support your mental, physical, and spiritual needs as you go through YOUR journey. Encouraging small, healthy, nutritional, sleep pattern, and mind-body changes that will enhance your success.
- We always put the PERSON first, rather than the addiction.
- Our experienced and knowledgeable coaches will never read from a script. It is an individualized program, because every person is unique.
Over the past two years, 91% of the people we've worked with have quit using nicotine. We'd love to help you become nicotine-free and achieve the health goals you desire.
