program focused on tobacco control
Better Health, More Life
Quitting smoking is one of the best decisions you can make. Your life and your family will thank you for it.
You've read that smoking is among the leading causes of deaths that can be avoided on the planet. And that cigarette consumption is closely associated with diseases such as cancer and hypertension, to name two of a long list drawn up by the World Health Organization (WHO).
But this is not enough for you to stop smoking, right?
Yes, because it is difficult. We know that.
But what if you think about the big decision you’ve made all throughout your lifetime? There were several, right? Many of them gave you the sweet and pleasant taste of victory and conquest. Others made you proud of the victory over a great opponent. And how many of them put a smile not only on your face, but also on the faces of those whom you really love and care for?
So, that is how 85% of customers who go through Kurotel’s antismoking program feel after quitting smoking. The method we’ve developed is based on an infallible tripod: detoxifying balanced diet, physical activities for lung recovery and psychological follow-up. Add to those respiratory and cardiac tests for assessing their degree of dependence.
And since we know how this opponent is strong, we continue by your side even after your departure. Our psychologist will be in touch with you for six months after your stay at Kurotel, supporting and working with a team by your side.
That is how, together, we will help you defeat this great opponent which is the behavioral and emotional dependence to cigarettes.
