My sister recommended this site and is doing well with the patches how do I get a coach to help me
Welcome! That's great that your sister recommended you to us.
Re: Patches: Do you happen to know what her username is on the site? It could help me with more context. We do have some people who have access to additional premium features because they are sponsored by their employer, their health plan provider or they were randomly selected for a study with us. Most people however do not have access to such additional features and contact their state's quit line at 800-QUIT-NOW to see if their eligible for NRT.

Most states have 1-800 quit lines.......look under social services or contact your local American Cancer Society or see if your health care plan has a quit smoking option. If you are buying cigarettes, I'll bet patches are a comparable price to a carton of cigarettes.
