Quit Smoking Tips For The Great American Smokeout Day - November 15

Hazelden Foundation offers Barry McMillen - Nicotine Cessation Expert and

Former Smoker

CENTER CITY, Minn., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Using tobacco isn't just a habit; it's an addiction. Hazelden has been helping alcoholics and drug addicts find recovery from addiction for over 50 years. The same principles of the Hazelden treatment experience help tobacco users find recovery, too.


It's a challenge because "smoking is an addictive process with a lot of daily rituals that are hard to break," says Barry McMillen, a national expert on smoking cessation and supervisor of Hazelden's smoking cessation program, Your Next Step, one of the few residential programs in the country, and the only one that uses the Twelve Steps. McMillen has 36 years of experience smoking and almost 15 years in recovery from nicotine. He is available to offer tips to quit smoking, provide alarming stats on the costs and impact of smoking, and also speak about the hope for recovery from tobacco.

"Think 'One Day at a Time,'" McMillen said. "The idea of quitting forever can sound impossible or too difficult to even bother. But you can handle quitting smoking for a 24-hour period -- and if that sounds too challenging, you can focus on 'one hour at a time.'"
