* Disclaimer: Results vary per person, subject to qualifying. We will conduct a free phone interview to determine whether you are really ready to quit smoking, as we can only help those who are genuinely ready. If, in the unlikely event that you do not quit in the first session, follow up sessions are free.

We cannot guarantee that you will quit smoking, though we do guarantee to provide FIVE FREE sessions if you don't quit in your first one-hour session, or if you EVER begin smoking again at any stage of your life. If you still do not quit after five-free sessions, we will give your money back.
