You can do this and Chevron has resources to help.
Your risk for tobacco-related diseases drops when you become tobacco free. Your risk can go down within just a few weeks of quitting; and it continues to drop every tobacco-free year. The tobacco-free program brings together a number of resources that can help you become and stay tobacco free. These are available to U.S.-payroll employees who are eligible for Chevron's health plans. The resources provided through the Healthy You program as well as other Chevron resources are described below. If you have questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tobacco Cessation Specialty Coaching provided through the Healthy You program combines one-on-one coaching, nicotine replacement therapy and integrated online resources to help eligible participants successfully stop using tobacco products. Tobacco Cessation Specialty Coaching is available to U.S.-payroll employees who are eligible for Chevron's health plans, and includes counseling sessions which may be used together with other Chevron based health coaching programs.
Nicotine replacement therapy is provided free of charge and shipped confidentially to eligible participants. You can use this service again, even if your past attempts to quit have been unsuccessful. To get started, contact Healthy You as instructed below on this page.
When you log in to your Healthy You account, you can start the Quit Tobacco plan from the list offered by the Daily Habits tool. Daily Habits plans provides an interactive, online approach to work on daily and one-time activities to help you form healthy habits. It’s like a digital health coach in your pocket. Daily interaction is encouraged to track your progress for this 90-day plan. Start by setting a quit day, then check your progress daily. You can also use the Tobacco Tracker to record your tobacco use each day and pair this with other quit tobacco resources, like Tobacco Cessation Coaching.
After you log in, go to the Daily Habits tab to select this plan. Note that you can only have three active Daily Habits plans at a time. If you’ve already signed up for three plans, you may need to discard one to see the quit tobacco option.
