Smoking Cessation Program

Smokers face immense pressure between their nicotine addiction and their desire to quit. In 2017, it was estimated that 4.6 million Canadians are smoking tobacco. For Calgary, it was estimated that 14.7% of the population is a daily smoker!

While many people think it is ok to smoke, smoking is not safe!

Seventy carcinogenic substances are present in tobacco smoke. They are related to risks, including lung cancer, cardiac, gum bleeding, pre-malignant mouth lesions, lip and mouth cancer, sudden infant death syndrome, asthma, and many other conditions.

Smoking cessation became a must after a huge body of research proved the existance of 70 carcinogenic substances out of the 4000 chemical substances found in tobacoo.
