Smokers get support in kicking the habit: On Jan. 5, the first meeting of the Smokers Anonymous Support Group took place at the Pontiac Community Hospital. Ten people gathered there for support in their efforts to quit smoking.
The group, led by psychologist Marie-Paule Vachon and MD Sylvan Simard is for many, a last resort in getting off nicotine and leading a healthier life.
Participants were asked to first consider why they smoke and why they want to quit. They were also asked to carefully assess what their personal weaknesses are where smoking is concerned.
