A Solution to the #1 New Yearâ€™s Resolution: Quit Smoking
Smoke Free Society extends offer of free download to help smokers quit
Palm Beach, Fla, December 15, 2005 â€“ Due to the overwhelming demand in November for its free, online download of the â€œProven Stop Smoking Technique,â€ Smoke Free Society has announced plans to continue offering it through the end of January to help and encourage smokers to follow through with their New Yearâ€™s resolution to quit for good this coming year while saving their life, their loved onesâ€™ health and their hard-earned money.
Millions of smokers are fed up and tired of smoking and commit themselves to stop smoking at the start of each New Year. Unfortunately, the majority either doesnâ€™t follow through or fail to quit properly, relapse and pick up the habit again due to lack of preparation and proper support. Quitting smoking is a process and there is no â€œsilver bulletâ€ that can cure smoking overnight. But the good news is that thousands of smokers give up smoking each day by using modern cessation methods. Smoke Free Society offers 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 its three-step principle of preparation, quitting and support, helping smokers to correctly prepare and successfully quit.
â€œToday, we better understand and can address the smokerâ€™s psychological and emotional dependency and conditioning to smoking and nicotine. Over time, smokers become conditioned to smoke, triggered by their daily routines that feed their urge to light up. An effective way of quitting is to signal smokers when to smoke, disrupting their usual smoking pattern and gradually increasing the time between cigarettes. This helps break the association of lighting up with having a cup of coffee, finishing a meal, etc. Preparation, education and support from professionals and family can further help smokers quit and stay quit,â€ said Rez Seyedin, founder of Smoke Free Society.
In 2005, quitting smoking was the number one New Yearâ€™s resolution in America. Tragically one out of four, or nearly 50 million, Americans still smoke and need help to quit. According to the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General, â€œStopping smoking represents the single most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.â€
The good news is that smokers tremendously benefit financially from quitting as well. An average smoker spends over $1,500 a year on their cigarettes alone, and that doesnâ€™t include all other related costs. A Duke University study puts the true cost of lifetime smoking at $40 a pack â€“ money that could be used to provide food, education, healthcare and wellbeing for their family.
â€œThe upcoming holidays and New Year are great times to give loved ones the gift of life, by helping them quit smoking for good. Download our free â€˜Proven Stop Smoking Techniqueâ€™ or use our other quit-smoking plans and services to show your loved ones you care and to encourage them to quit smoking,â€ said Seyedin.
