How to Support a Friend or Co-Worker
Interested in quitting smoking? The Quit For Life® Program is available to all students, faculty, and staff, as well as spouses, and their adult dependents age 18 and older. The university is covering the cost of the program and nicotine replacement therapy, including the patch or gum.
The Division of Student Affairs (DSA) and University Human Resources (UHR) are currently looking for GW students, faculty and staff interested in helping promote a smoke-free GW.
Showing your support of a Smoke-Free GW and painting the internet yellow sends a powerful message-that students, faculty, staff and community members are standing up to make a GW a healthier place to learn, work and live.
Knowing how to talk to and support your friend or co-worker when quitting — without offending them — can be hard. Here is some advice for getting the conversation started.
