Anti-Smoking Program To Visit Bermuda Again

October 12, 2013

no_smoking_sign_Bermudian cigarette smokers, like their counterparts around the world, are often wanting to quit the expensive and unhealthy habit for a variety of reasons, and an upcoming visit to the island by the team behind the Easyway to Stop Smoking program will present a unique opportunity to quit for good.

Over the past 30 years, an estimated 10 million people have used Allen Carr’s unique, simple, drug-free Easyway method and are now happy non-smokers. Open Airways is bringing this workshop, led by speaker Damian O’Hara, back to Bermuda on November 17, 2013.

The Easyway to Stop Smoking method was developed by Allen Carr, a former chain-smoker. In July 1983, after countless miserable attempts to quit, Allen discovered what every smoker dreams of: an effective, immediate, and easy way to quit. Since then an estimated ten million smokers have quit using his unique Easyway method. Unlike other methods that involve substitution or will power, Allen Carr’s method makes stopping smoking easy by teaching smokers how to reframe smoking in a way that completely removes the desire to smoke.

On Sunday, November 17, smokers in Bermuda will once again have the opportunity to quit the habit. For more information about the clinic or to register your spot in advance, please contact oamee@transact.bm or local coordinator Mary Ewles via telephone at 238-3261.

    How Much is this Non Smoking Course?

    It would be great if the Government (or some other sponsor) would pay for this training to be offered… to support our country encouraging healthy habits. It would be even greater if there could be something done to reduce the price of healthy food and to increase the price of unhealthy foods.

      No let’s prohibit cigarettes,since its worked so well against cannabis,and go about imprisoning first the dealers,distributors,sellers and of course the addicts themselves.Let’s face it they aren’t harming themselves alone since a couple hundred people die yearly from just second hand exposure.If we need more prisons heck there’s some much needed jobs,win win situation.Ban cancer sticks now!!

        I haven’t had a cigarette in over 6 months…not because of this course (which cost me over $200) but because of e-cigarettes. I’ve been ordering filters from a company in California for MONTHS now…until late August, when my last shipment arrived.

        Customs seized it and told me that it’s illegal to import these as a private customer without a letter from the Chief Medical Officer,(WHAT?) as the nicotine is not in its natural state….what, in a cigarette with over 1000 extra poisons? I’d rather have the nicotine in e-cigarette form with vapor and propylene glycol…and NO tar, NO cyanide etc…

        So, I dutifully emailed the Chief Medical Officer….!8 TIMES!!!!

        Wouldn’t you think that the Government would try to assist people trying to cut down/quit a bad habit? (The type I was using sells filters in a step-down fashion…you start with 16mg nicotine, then go to 12, then 6…then 0…)

        (BTW…e-cigarettes produce no second-hand smoke and they work out cheaper than regular cigarettes.)

        But then it occurred to me that the Government doesn’t give a rat’s *** about whether or not we quit smoking…as long as they get their tax on all those over-priced cigarettes.

        SHAME ON YOU, GOVERNMENT!

    Can you imagine,seizing E cigarettes while allowing cancer sticks to be imported,apparently endorsed by the Chief Medical Officer for a business monopoly.Hey i guess it keeps doctors busy and business people profiting from peoples misery.Great work.

    • Karma says:

      I’m still trying to figure out if they would have seized the 0mg filters as well…you know, the ones with NO nicotine…

      It’s been since the end of August and I’m still PO’d.
