Smoking Cessation Programs
 
Once you make the commitment to stop smoking, you may want to research smoking cessation programs in your community. These programs can be a great source of instruction and support. Smokers committed to quitting usually find that the camaraderie and shared experience they offer make the process easier.
 
Most programs have meetings once or twice a week for four to eight weeks. This ongoing encouragement helps increase your odds of quitting successfully. In addition to providing group support, many programs offer one-on-one counseling. This personal approach will help teach you better ways to cope with specific stressors or barriers that complicate your quitting efforts.
 
Many smoking cessation programs are free or offered at a low cost. To find out what programs are available in your area, contact your local hospital, your health plan or your employer. The American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, the National Cancer Institute and other health associations may also be able to direct you to programs in your community. Or simply look in the Yellow Pages.
 
Social support is vital to successfully quit smoking. Smoking cessation programs in combination with other smoking cessation methods increase your chances of success.
