Myths and Realities
Cessation and Quit Cards
Providing tobacco cessation services and resources to support tobacco-free living is one way to show appreciation to Veterans for their service. Project UNIFORM is able to support cessation events hosted in California. These events or activities may be hosted by military installations, health care clinics, college campuses, community organizations and coalitions, and other agencies or groups seeking to provide tobacco prevention and cessation information to Veterans.
What Project UNIFORM Offers
We are able to provide participating installations, colleges, organizations, and groups with free tobacco cessation quit kits, electronic media, and print resources.
Quit Kits contain items and information to support a person who uses tobacco in making a quit attempt. These materials encourage behavior change and participation in location tobacco-free activities.
Electronic media includes the placement of ads on Facebook to promote awareness of local and statewide (1-800-NO-BUTTS) tobacco cessation resources.
Print resources, including quit cards, postcards, posters, and flyers are also available. Military-specific resources can be requested when registering for the event. Additional educational materials can be ordered by submitting an Educational Materials form to CYAN. These materials are available year-round to promote cessation in local military communities.
Cessation resources are also available from the California Smokers’ Helpline. An assortment of cessation materials such as the 1-800-NO-BUTTS gold card, Helpline brochures, and fact sheets are available for order or download at www.nobutts-catalog.org.
June 13, 2018 at 10:00am: Supporting Veterans In Quitting Tobacco Webinar
Historically, tobacco use rates have been disproportionately higher among military veterans. Tobacco industry targeting, military culture, and a variety of factors have encouraged and sustained tobacco use among Veterans. This webinar will highlight the factors and unique stressors of Veterans that contribute to their high tobacco use rates. Moreover, there is a misconception that all Veterans access their healthcare through the Veterans Administration (VA) where tobacco treatment services are offered; however, this is not the case. Veterans are present in every California County, utilizing a variety of health facilities. Thus, Project UNIFORM strives to inform and educate about the problematic prevalence of tobacco use rates among Veterans and how local projects can engage Veteran organizations to encourage quit attempts.
