SMOKING CESSATION CLINIC


The most famous quote associated with smoking is by Mark Twain, American writer and Humourist. It goes as follows: “Quitting smoking is easy; I have done it hundreds of times!”

The quote implies the difficulty in giving up smoking in a humorous way. However, the same Mark Twain also stated, “The secret of moving forward is getting started”, which implies that you have to just start taking action, if you want to quit smoking. There is no perfect day.

If you are a smoker, if you are interested in protecting your lungs and physical health, promoting physical and psychological well being and preventing cancer, you have come to the right place.

You can give up smoking. Help is available. Just that you have to start. Call now!
