Quitting smoking is the single best thing that you could do for your health.
However, most smokers have made at least one attempt to quit in the past, and know first hand that quitting is easier said than done. If you're thinking about quitting, know that you don't have to go it alone.
The Wood Buffalo PCN offers free Smoking Cessation sessions to all residents of Fort McMurray and no referral is needed. Participants are offered stress-free appointments with a pharmacist and/or a respiratory therapist, who will explain the quitting process and prescribe smoking cessation medication to help you along your way.
No judgement. No pressure. Our clinical staff understand that relapse is part of the quitting process. Sometimes, it takes a number of tries and a number of conversations over a number of years. That's okay. We take a judgement-free approach and simply offer support for patients who are reconsidering their tobacco habits.
