Stop Smoking ... Start Living


Quitting smoking is not about just breaking a “bad habit.” It is about changing your life so cigarettes are no longer a part of it. Our three week program “Stop Smoking ... Start Living” is designed to empower you to:
  • Identify what triggers your smoking and make lasting changes that will keep you smoke free.
  • Live more in the moment so you can respond — rather than react — to thoughts, feelings and situations that would normally trigger smoking.
  • Develop communication skills to help you get the most from your support system.
  • Utilize coping techniques to offset any nicotine cravings.
  • Relax deeply and affirm living a smoke-free life.
  • Cope with stress in ways that improve your overall well-being.
