SMOKING CESSATION PROGRAM
stop smoking the natural way
From Resolutions to Reality
The idea of “New Year, New You” sounds like a great plan each December, but unfortunately, resolutions tend to come and go as quickly as our holidays do. How many of you have made a new years resolution to quit smoking, but after February 1st rolls around, you find yourself slowly slinking back to a cigarette or two on a Friday night. These two cigarettes turn into a half pack on the weekend, which turns into a casual smoke each night after work. We are not casting judgments here. As addictions go, nicotine is one of the most addictive substances to the human body. Quitting is no easy task. This is why we want to offer some help, and show you how to make a successful change to your habits once and for all.
“As addictions go, nicotine is one of the most addictive substances to the human body.”
The ever so popular e-cigarettes have become a hot item on the market. With different styles, flavours, and nicotine options, e-cigarettes are quickly becoming a healthier, and more stylish alternative to cigarettes, especially for those that want to quit smoking. While helpful to many, we have heard from a lot of patients that e-cigarettes are not a desirable alternative for everyone due to their cost, functionality, and potential health risks. Aside from the harmful side effects of nicotine, e-cigs have also the potential to cause dry mouth, allergies, asthma, and something called “popcorn lung”.
Ok, so we know cigarettes are bad, that isn’t the point here. We also know that the marketed alternatives to smoking, while helpful, aren’t the healthiest. And we know that cigarettes are one of the hardest habits to kick. So what can Naturopaths do to help? A lot.
At gesund the choice is yours. You may choose a “pay as you go” plan, or purchase our Smoking Cessation Program. In our experience, patients are most successful when they are part of a program. A group of appointments can be purchased together in advance, this keeps you committed to the process while habits and behaviours change, and saves you some money on the overall cost.
Seeing a Naturopath can also be about a lot more than your smoking habit. Once you are ready, we can work with you to help you quit, and we can support you through each step of the way. As we care about holistic and preventative medicine, we will ask about all areas of your health, and work with you to not only quit smoking but to help you achieve optimal health and happiness in 2017.
Bring your resolutions to reality this year, and book with an ND today!
