Welcome to Learning to Quit! You’ve just taken an extremely important step to stop smoking and end nicotine addiction. Every person’s journey is different, and yours is unique. Only you understand how you were influenced to start smoking, how it’s been part of your life, and your unique reasons to now end the relationship. You are not alone. The work that you’re embarking on is shared by the 24 people that have been interviewed for Learning To Quit and the millions of people around the world that are actively leaving cigarettes and nicotine addiction behind.
We co-founded the Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center (FTTC) at UCSF 20 years ago and are both former smokers. Since FTTC started, we’ve interacted with 1000 smokers seeking help. Together, we’ve worked on Learning to Quit for many years to give you an action plan and all the knowledge and experience needed to take control of your health.
