How to quit smoking?

The choice to quit smoking for good is a step that will have the greatest impact on improving your health. It is never too late to start. Quitting is possible even if you are a long time, heavy smoker and have tried to quit many times in the past. The human body and spirit has an incredible capacity for positive change.

A few years ago, a group of health professionals with extensive experience in the field of smoking cessation, chronic lung disease, and health promotion developed a new module called “Living Well Smoke Free”.

This learning module was designed to help you to recognize the strengths and motivation that you possess to live a healthier and fuller life as a non-smoker. Living Well Smoke Free is unique in its focus on the challenges of smoking cessation experienced by persons living with chronic lung conditions. The goal of this program is to help patients attain skills and adopt lifestyle choices that result in better self-management of their lung disease and in improved quality of life.

This module has been designed for you. It uses a series of self-reflection exercises to help you to better understand your own smoking habits and your personal quitting goals. It also provides important information and guidance on strategies to help you to quit now or to reduce how much you smoke to make quitting easier in the future.
