Rigs without Cigs
~the highway to a tobacco free life~
Want to quit smoking or using tobacco products but don’t know where or how to start? Thinking that you’ll never be able to stop? You are NOT alone! There are many other professional drivers on the road feeling the same way. There IS hope!
Be a part of the driver movement to drive a Rig without Cigs. The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund, along with a few fantastic drivers and sponsors, is conducting a year-long program to help drivers and their families break the nicotine habit. The program starts September 1, 2017 and runs through August 31, 2018. Drivers can join the program at the beginning of each quarter or continue in the program throughout the year. There will be a prize drawing each quarter for drivers that are involved and making progress. One grand prize drawing will be held for all drivers that stay involved for the whole year. The kick-off will be at the Great American Truck Show in Dallas, TX. Prizes will be provided by Road Pro.
Registration begins August 1st. Each driver that signs up be a part of the program will fill out an online informational questionnaire. After receiving the information, SCF will provide information on how to break the chains of nicotine, along with a welcome packet, via email. Drivers who register at GATS will receive a gift and FREE doctor consultation.
The St. Christopher Fund will provide weekly encouragement and accountability and create a network of support from fellow drivers. We will help drivers identify and beat their tobacco triggers. The SCF will explain how nicotine addiction works and which stop-smoking aids are available to them. We will also provide information on the effects of smoking on the body.
It is highly recommended that each driver receive a consultation with a tobacco cessation doctor/counselor to decide the best method of treatment for each individual. SCF will provide information on how to obtain that consultation. Quarterly conference calls with Dr. John McElligott will be offered to discuss the progress and questions that program participants may have. Be sure to join our Rigs without Cigs Facebook page to network with other drivers in the program.
