"When I first entered the smoking program I thought that there would be hollering and they would be making me feel bad about my habit, but it's quite the opposite. The program is there to remind you that it's up to you to get healthy, but also lend a hand to assist you with patches and gum if you're sincere about quitting. Plus it helps to be there in the room with other smokers who you can relate to. One of the best days was when she invited previous folks who were able to quit because of the program. I was able to look at the previous smokers that came to speak one day, and was inspired by them since they're doing so well and were able to quit. I have benefited from the smoking cessation group greatly and was able to quit by the third week of her program. I'd like to give CHI and Carol my personal gratitude and thanks for helping to improve my health."
