Thank you for visiting the Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) recruitment website.
We are no longer recruiting for the Tips campaign, but if you would like to
share your compelling story about how smoking affected your physical and/or
mental health, please email:

From 2012-2018, the campaign has helped result in:

1 million


16.4 million

quit attempts


early deaths prevented

If you’ve quit smoking and have been diagnosed with a smoking-related health condition, we want to hear your story.

During the past 10 years, more than 40 people have shared their real stories through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign of how smoking has negatively impacted them and their families. Those stories inspired more than 16.4 million people to try to quit smoking and approximately 1 million to successfully quit between 2012 and 2018.

This is your chance to become a Tips participant and help prevent what happened to you from happening to others.

Terrie H., Tips participant
