Quit smoking: strategy and tips

Did you ever try to quit smoking but failed? You are not the only one! One out of ten smokers has tried to quit at least 10 times. So what’s wrong? In most cases, a strategy. In this MOOC, we offer a guided, appealing and multimedia online experience for you to light your last cigarette, regardless of your motives.

We all have our reasons to quit smoking: some just do it for health, others to give a good example to their children, and others simply to improve their athletic performance. Reality, though, is that the odds are against us: less than 5% of people who try to quit smoking succeed. They try to quit at once, with nicotine patches, or even hypnosis… We can think of any method, but the truth is that quick solutions do not usually work. It’s about time we stop doing it wrong. 

What are you going to learn in this MOOC?

In this online course, addressed to all those who have decided to quit smoking forever, you are going to learn how to face the challenge from a different perspective. We will talk to you about how to build a bullet-proof plan to get you ready for a smokeless life. And the best of it all is that you won’t be alone on this trip.
