From Kick Buts...helping along the way I still have a ways to go but I believe that I can kick this habit and if their is anyone who have been thinking about quitting give kick butts a chance...I am sure that it will help u like it is helping me I am on my way to becoming a non smoker...I hope my little story can help the next person...be blessed and stay blessed.”

“Before going through the program I was smoking at least 7-8 a day and some days even more. Once starting the program they have been giving me information on stuff I didn’t know and sent me patches to help. I’ve quit before for 2 1/2 years and ended up going back not knowing the information that I know now. I’ve only craved cigarettes 2-3 times and now I don’t crave them at all and get nauseated from the smell. They have a great team that motivates you and if you ever need someone to talk to or text they’re there for you to see you through it. I've been even telling coworkers of mine about the program and they’ll be joining it soon. This is the best program ever for the support and having caring people to stand behind you.”


“My mother and I decided to quit together and kick buts has helped very much.”

“I tried 3 times to quit smoking and they always been supportive and helpful, I tried patches twice and they didn’t seem to work for me but now I’m trying the gum and I feel like it’s working.”

“It takes one day at a time, it gets easier, the 4 D’s helped me, every text from kicks buts was helpful.”

Kick Buts has played a huge roll in my decision to quit as well as my journey. They have been soo supportive and made the process as easy as it can be! The rest is up to me!!

Took me 2 Nexium’s & went to work. While I was at work around 9 a.m I started having chest pain’s & trouble breathing.. A co-worker took me to the hospital not far from our store. I was told I had Costochondritis an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone .I really thought I was having a Heart Attack!! But the pains of this feel’s like you having a Heart Attack. Doctor put me on medicine & told me I had to quit smoking if I ever wanted to see my grandkids on day.. So when I came home I logged onto Walmartone & started reading about the Kick buts program. I purchased some of the Nicotine Lozenges before I received the package from them. The text messages they send really helped me through this. They give you tips & keep you updated on your progress. Today July 25th I am 1 week smoke free!!! No more chest pains, breathing better & have more energy now that I quit smoking.. Thanks to the text I get from Kick Buts, the support from my family & my co-workers I quit the habit!!!”

So far I’ve been able to refrain from using tobacco products with the help of KickButs and nicotine replacement patches. The messages sent are inspirational and provide the mental assistance needed when the urge to use come upon me. Thanks!

“I have tried a lot from mints, to gum, to medication, to just about everything. When my 14 year old and my 11 year old said “dad please quit. And stay quit this time.” I knew I needed to. I was tired of smelling like an ashtray. And my wife did not smoke. I was like ok I can do this. So I signed up for kick buts. They sent me bi weekly reminders that quit day was fast approaching. So I quit the day before I was supposed to. The patches came the day before. So I slapped one on. Felt weird at first. But they send me multi day reminders how to kick the urge. I have been smoke free 2 weeks now. And already in stage two. My family and my friends and life in general is more important. I can breathe better, run more, and enjoy. I actually played a full game of basketball with my oldest son. And we go out hunting and hiking when we can. So thank you kick buts for helping me get what is important back in life. FREEDOM!!! ”
