Have you attempted to stop using tobacco and/or nicotine products in the past with little to no success? Find the support you need right on campus! MSU Health4U created Breathe Easy, a free tobacco, and nicotine cessation program.
As an MSU employee (or adult benefit-eligible dependent) who is currently using tobacco, nicotine, or vaping products begin your next step to quit with Breathe Easy. Breathe Easy offers fall and spring support sessions for employees and/or their benefit-eligible dependents looking to stop using tobacco or nicotine products. The next available session will begin Wed., Feb. 26 and will run a total of six sessions through Wed., May 20. This program offers behavior support, medical evaluation and the choice of medication to quit. (You also have the option to quit without using medication.)
Do you want to quit smoking but aren’t quite sure what course of action to take? While smoking can be one of the most difficult health behaviors to change, it doesn’t have to be. MSU Health4U has the perfect solution. Breathe Easy, a totally free tobacco and nicotine cessation program, offers behavioral support and medical evaluation to help you kick your bad habits to the curb—for good. One of the best attributes of Breathe Easy is the fact that the program can be tailored to fit the needs of each participant. For example, participants can elect to enact a medication-free quitting plan. In order to participate in Breathe Easy, an employee needs to be benefits-eligible or be the adult, benefits-eligible family member of an MSU faculty, staff, graduate student assistant or retiree.
