January 19 is Weedless Wednesday, the highlight of National Non-Smoking Week. The Canadian Cancer Society encourages those who smoke to abstain from smoking for 24 hours. It could end up being the start of something wonderful.

There are many ways to quit smoking. There is a free 24-hour smokers’ helpline called Quit Now by phone at 1-877-455-2233 or online at: www.quitnow.ca. All of these community resources are at the clinics website at: www.CISIC.ca (which includes the free Quit Smoking movie).

Sooke now has a smoking cessation classroom program at the Integrated Health Network (IHN) Sooke Road Office (next to the Sooke News Mirror office).
