Smoking Ban In Ohio Leads To A Drastic Rise In Quit Smoking Attempts
Date: 13th May, 2007
The approval of a smoking ban in Ohio last year and the subsequent enforcement of the ban from May 2007 onwards in the state has made smoking cessation a rage among the smokers in the state with smoking addicts opting for hypnosis treatments, smoking cessation classes, the anti-smoking medication chantix, tobacco quit lines and various other measures to quit smoking.
Sources point out that after the regulation of the ban in smoking; people under the influence of cigarette addiction are increasingly seeking professional help to induce smoking cessation. According to reports, at Hypnotherapy Associates of Northwest Ohio in Perrysburg, the number of people seeking hypnosis treatment to quit smoking has risen to 20 per cent. Similarly, Mercy Health Partners has started to provide help in quit smoking by doubling up the number of smoking cessation classes it offers. There are other health organizations too, like the University of Toledo Medical Center, Medical College of Ohio Hospital and similar others who are offering quit smoking courses to patients and helping patients to induce smoking cessation.
As a consequence of the rise in quit smoking attempts at Ohio , a whole lot of smokers have induced smoking cessation successfully. When Tammy Theaker, the smoking cessation patient at St. Luke's Hospital could not smoke in restaurants due to the ban in smoking, she sought professional help and finally bid goodbye to smoking addiction. In the same way, Rick Conley, a man from Waterville opted for a smoking cessation class at St. Luke's in Maumee alongside using chantix and quit smoking successfully.
