Helping smokers quit for good

Val Warren, of Prince Edward Island, is proof that with determination and help along the way, anyone can quit smoking. In 2010, Val, who had smoked more than a pack a day for 30 years, used the Canadian Cancer Society's Smokers' Helpline to successfully quit.

"To be smoke free is the best," says Val. "I have never felt better physically. Now I'm much calmer and not as stressed."

The Society has operated the Smokers' Helpline across most of the country since 2000. It's a fully bilingual program that has helped thousands of Canadians win the fight against a powerful addiction.

"There are lots of challenges to quitting smoking, but you definitely can do it," says Val.
