Time to Quit Smoking
 

Quit Smoking

In an effort to help those who desire to quit-smoking, the CWFL offers one-on-one counseling and coaching services to assist in the process from planning to implementation.

The program offered by CWFL was developed by the National Cancer Institute and was put together with the assistance of ex-smokers and experts. This program will help you prepare to quit and support you in the days and weeks after you quit.

For those individuals who are already involved in another smoking cessation program, CWFL staff are available to provide supportive services (e.g. stress management) to help you succeed.

You can quit for good, even if you've tried before. It is a well known fact that it takes some individuals several tries to actually quit smoking, however, you learn something new each time you try that will help you in your future attempts and eventual success.

So, if you're ready to make a healthy life altering change call our Center today for a free individual appointment with one of our professional staff.
