The American Legacy Foundation Campaign
EX® helps smokers quit by “re-learning life without cigarettes.” It helps smokers do everything they used to do with a cigarette without one.
Tobacco addiction is complex. It works its way into almost every aspect of people’s lives. Beating that addiction takes a comprehensive plan that addresses the physical, behavioral and social aspects of smoking.
BecomeAnEX.org, the EX website, offers smokers a free plan to quit with information such as:
- The importance of identifying smoking triggers and learning how to handle these triggers without cigarettes before trying to quit;
- The addictive nature of nicotine and how it actually changes the brain so that it’s much more difficult to quit without the aid of nicotine replacement or non-nicotine medication;
- The importance of support from friends and family, whether they are helping during a rocky period or even just giving some space.
