STOP on the Net

​​Quit ​smoking from home during COVID-19
With restrictions on social gatherings and many of us home these days, it's never been a better time to quit smoking.

STOP on the Net is a free smoking cessation program that you can complete from the safety of your home. This program is entirely online; no interventions or visits are required by a health care provider. 

Eligible participants will receive:
  • ​A mail order of four boxes of nicotine patches and two boxes of nicotine gum or lozenge (your choice), within approximately two weeks of enrollment
  • Two​ email surveys at five weeks and six months after joining the program to see how you're doing
  • Option to join an online vaping cessation program (E-squared) if eligible
Is STOP on the Net for you?
  • You must be 18 years of age or older;
  • You must be an Ontario resident;
  • You must smoke cigarettes and be willing to make a quit attempt within 30 days of enrollment;
  • You must provide a valid email address and complete a 20-minute online enrollment survey to confirm whether or not you are eligible for the program.



STOP on the Net was launched by the Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) Program with support from the Ontario Ministry of Health.

Please note:  STOP on the Net (SOTN) Program enrolment is limited to one per person, and four per household, within a 12-month period​. Individuals that enroll in the SOTN Program will not be eligible to join the regular STOP Program at their clinic for 12 months following their SOTN enrollment date.

Please consult your health care provider before using NRT if you: are already using NRT medication; have/had heart, thyroid, circulation or stomach problems, stroke, or high blood pressure; take insulin or any prescription medications; have ever experienced seizures.​
