Courage to Quit®
Courage to Quit® is a stop smoking program developed by Dr. Andrea King and the Respiratory Health Association (RHA). The progam is now offered in a "rolling group" format (patients can join anytime) at the University of Chicago Medicine. The program is consistent with proven, evidence-based smoking cessation methods, including:
- Behavioral skills will help you to compe with smoking triggers, better deal with stress, and identify high-risk situations that lead to craving.
- Cognitive skills help you to understand smoking thoughts that may lead to relapse and how to counteract them.
- Medication information is provided in the program so you can learn about medications (prescription or over the counter) that can help increase your chances of success in quitting tobacco
