Women Who Quit

Women Who Quit is a virtual community of real women who have quit smoking, or who are in the process of quitting, and want to share their quit journeys with other women. Quitting isn’t easy, but these women have challenged themselves to put down cigarettes and live a smokefree life. The Women Who Quit community is motivated by:

  • Setting a public goal (or quit date)
  • Receiving virtual support and encouragement from other women who are quitting
  • Learning new ways to deal with everyday challenges
  • Inspiring other women to quit

Quitting smoking is a big step. It’s something to celebrate and be proud of! Each of the Women Who Quit share their quit dates, progress towards smokefree milestones (e.g. 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, etc.), struggles they’ve overcome, pictures of themselves, and videos documenting their journey. Quitting smoking happens one minute, one day, and one week at a time. The Smokefree Women community recognizes and celebrates each milestone reached.

Becoming a part of the Women Who Quit community is a great way to help you stick to your goal, and it’s easy! Here’s how to get involved:

  • If you have not yet quit smoking, choose a quit date and decide how you want to quit—preparation and planning are key factors for success. Review our QuitGuide to get started.
  • If you have already quit smoking, we want to hear from you too!
  • “Like” the Smokefree Women Facebook page.
  • Upload your picture to our Women Who Quit album and caption it with your quit date.
  • Post to the Smokefree Women Facebook page—you can do this in advance of your quit date—telling the community a little about yourself, your smoking history, and how you plan to quit.
  • Post messages or video—at least every other day, but more often if you like—sharing where you are in your quit journey, your quit strategy, challenges, and successes.
  • Support others in the Women Who Quit community throughout their quit journey.
