Craving to Quit

Take back your health

With Craving to Quit® from Sharecare, you can take back your health and stop smoking or vaping in 21 days with this step-by-step program developed by psychiatrist and neuroscientist Dr. Jud Brewer MD PhD.

Why our program works

70 percent of American smokers want to quit, but only 10 percent will do so successfully on their own. Craving to Quit from Sharecare is an evidence-based digital program that teaches you how habits are formed, and then how to break them.
