Quitting smoking successfully this New Year - NEED A SOURCE?

TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - Ontarians are making their New Year's resolutions to quit smoking this January. With all of the quit methods and aids out there, people are wondering which is the most effective. Where should they start when quitting smoking?

Smoking is one of the most difficult addictions to break. Quitting is a process, not an event, and it is a different experience for everyone. Marianne Popovacki, Team Lead at the Canadian Cancer Society Smokers' Helpline, encourages Ontarians to set themselves up for success by making a quit plan and getting support throughout the quitting process.

As a Quit Specialist at the Canadian Cancer Society Smokers' Helpline, Marianne counsels people at all stages of quitting. She can speak about:

    -  Creating a personalized quit plan

    -  Quit methods and aids

    -  Staying smoke-free

    -  Support services from the Canadian Cancer Society Smokers' Helpline,
       including phone counselling, an online program and text messaging

    -  The Driven to Quit Challenge launching in January 2010 to provide
       extra motivation for Ontarians to make a quit attempt for their chance
       to win incredible prizes!
