"Participant said she made a connection with both the registration person and me. She was pleased to know there was such a helpful program out there. By the end of the call, she said she would give herself a week to Quit and then call back to let me know she has done it. When I gave her a local resource and contact info, it turns out she knows the person and that gave her another reason to believe it was her time to Quit. She said she felt empowered and confident she can Quit."
