A word from the EX Program clients and members
We did NOT expect to be able to launch so quickly after signing. We have more than 7,000 employees, and we launched within a week after the contract was finalized. Accessing flyers from the client portal was easy and we started to promote it heavily right away. We were thrilled!
The EX Program has been a tremendous benefit to Douglas County residents, and made a difference in our organization’s efforts to have an impact on the health of our community. The self-paced aspect of the program, along with the constant digital support and responsiveness of the EX team, make it no surprise that so many people have quit successfully using EX.
The EX Program makes it easy to get started as a new client. Our Client Success Manager provided us with support and feedback from A-Z and was very helpful in offering us additional resources. We would recommend them to other companies thinking about offering tobacco cessation services!
The beauty of this site is that the community offers unconditional love and experiential wisdom from people all over the world from all walks of life. These people have “been there, done that” and know the pitfalls, the excuses and the how to’s.
I had quit for two months when I found EX----BUT...I was hanging on to my quit by a thread and definitely would have smoked if I had not found this site. It was great to find normal people-----not doctors, not experts......but regular people who had quit/were quitting just like me.
From the very first day [in the community] I was greeted with an entirely new perspective! BecomeanEXers are FUN! They laugh, play, cry, gripe, feel in ways I’d forgotten how! That was my light bulb moment when I knew that I just had to have what they have!
I have to give all the credit for staying quit to this community. After close to 900 days, I’m still here nearly every day. Nothing ruins your smoking like BecomeAnEX!
