Smoking is a learned behavior, and can be unlearned, quit-smoking experts said.
Due to the overwhelming demand in November for its free, online download of the “Proven Stop Smoking Technique,” Smoke Free Society officials have announced plans to continue offering it through the end of January, to help encourage smokers to follow through with their New Year’s resolutions to quit for good this year, while saving their lives, their loved ones’ health, and their hard-earned money.
Millions of smokers feel fed up and tired of smoking, and commit themselves to stop smoking at the start of each new year, they said.
Unfortunately, the majority either don’t follow through, or fail to quit properly, relapses, and picks up the habit again due to lack of preparation and proper support, the experts said.
Quitting smoking is a process, and there is no “silver bullet” that can cure smoking overnight.
But the good news is that thousands of smokers give up smoking each day by using modern cessation methods.
Members of the Smoke Free Society offer plans and services that help smokers quit smoking in just 17 days without the use of any substance or drug.
This self-help process is based on their three-step principle of preparation, quitting, and support, helping smokers to correctly prepare and successfully quit.
Every year, quitting smoking is one of the top new year’s resolutions in America. Tragically, one out of four, or nearly 50 million, Americans still smoke, and need help to quit, he said.
According to those in the office of the U.S. Surgeon General, “Stopping smoking represents the single-most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.” An immediate benefit of quitting is saving money. An average smoker spends over $1,500 a year on cigarettes alone, and that doesn’t include all other related costs, experts said.
A Duke University study puts the true cost of lifetime smoking at $40 a pack, money that could be used to provide food, education, healthcare, and fun activities for a family.
