Next Step is a tobacco cessation support group made up of men and women helping each other to understand the health dangers of tobacco use, nicotine addiction and how to make positive steps toward living their lives free of tobacco and nicotine.
Research has shown that the best way to quit tobacco use and stay smoke free is to combine a cessation aid (like the patch or nicotine gum) with a strong support system. The members of our support group can coach you through the ups and downs of nicotine withdrawal and quitting.
Being in a support group can also help you develop new skills to conquer your nicotine addiction. In addition, the members of the group who have experienced the same problems can support each other and may suggest new ways of dealing with a particular problem. Most importantly, the largest advantage of joining a support groups is realizing that you are not alone.
