Tools and challenges, including practice quits and nicotine replacement therapy, help members learn how to change routines and habits.
Created for any and every stage of quit, Pivot Breathe offers tools designed to help members achieve their goals. By combining technology, human coaching, and behavioral science, Pivot Breathe changes the relationship members have with tobacco by first changing their relationship with quitting.
