Still Smoking?

What better New Year's resolution than to give up puffing? If you need motivation, check your cigarette package for one of several graphic health warnings--a disgusting set of teeth (gum disease), a frustrated couple on opposite sides of the bed (impotency), and other images that definitely de-glamorize smoking

What better New Year's resolution than to give up puffing? If you need motivation, check your cigarette package for one of several graphic health warnings--a disgusting set of teeth (gum disease), a frustrated couple on opposite sides of the bed (impotency), and other images that definitely de-glamorize smoking. And they're working! According to a survey published last year by the Canadian Medical Association, 43 per cent of respondents said the warnings raised concerns about the health effects of smoking, and 44 per cent indicated they are now more motivated to quit.
If you live in the Toronto area, check out the eight-week smoking cessation program offered by the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine's Robert Schad clinic. Web site: ccnm.edu/smoke_cess.html. Phone: 416-498-9763.
