If you’re thinking about quitting tobacco or vaping but aren’t sure how to start, attend the “Thinking About Quitting Tobacco” virtual workshop on November 9, from noon - 1 p.m. 

A welcoming, judgment-free environment 

The one-hour virtual workshop is offered by the Tobacco Consultation Service (TCS). Whether you have never quit before or you have tried many times, you’ll learn what support is available to you through the university and get your questions answered in a pressure-free environment.

  • Meet one of TCS’ caring Tobacco Treatment Specialists in a welcoming, judgment-free environment. 

  • Discover how TCS can help to empower and support you on your journey toward a tobacco-free life. 

  • Learn about the benefits of quitting tobacco or vaping.

  • Learn about treatment, support and resources available when you’re ready to start your tobacco free and/or vape free journey. 

  • When you’re ready to take the first step, access free individual or group tobacco counseling.  

Registration is now open for the November 9 workshop. If you can’t make the November date, additional workshops will be offered each month. 

Nov. 16 is the Great American Smokeout

The third Thursday in November is recognized as the Great American Smokeout, when thousands start their tobacco-free journey. To help anyone who is planning to quit on Nov. 16 or any other day, TCS has compiled a number of resources: 

  • Raise your awareness about myths and misconceptions related to smoking, quitting and vaping by taking the Tobacco I.Q. Online Challenge. At the end of the quiz, U-M faculty and staff can also enter to win one of four $25 Amazon gift cards. 

  • This “virtual” quit kit is designed to help you “Quit for A Day.” A limited number of physical quit kits are also available. 

  • Free, one-on-one counseling is available to faculty and staff, as well as their dependents. Participate virtually, by phone or in-person.

  • Eligible U-M drug plan members who want to quit tobacco can get prescription and over-the-counter smoking cessation medications with no copay.
