We can offer your company several solutions (Kiosks, Conferences, Groups), to help your employees
set up shop in your foyer or lunch room with our pamphlets, information
sheets and motivational props. A health professional with experience in
conducting smoking cessation programs is available to answer questions
and kick start the quitting process. Motivation in the near committed
can be enhanced by our equipment to measure carbon monoxide in the
exhaled breath of smokers, while for the more hardened, we have the
very vivid example of the ravages of smoking in the form of emphysemic
lungs. (aussi offert en français)
monoxide (CO) is one of the 4000 chemical substances in cigarette
smoke. The breath CO monitor is an instrument that measures the
quantity of CO exhaled from the lungs. This helps to rapidly sensitize
smokers to the impact of tobacco on their health. As CO levels drop to
normal after about 8 hours without smoking, this encourages people by
sensitizing them to the beneficial effects of a smoke-free life.
We will expose 2 dried lungs, one is healthy, the other emphysemic.
These are useful for clients to compare and observe the damages caused
by tobacco use.
OF DISEASED LUNGS
These are a series of pictures showing the progressive
deterioration of lungs due to diseases such as emphysema and chronic
“HANDS FREE” & “MOUSEOLOGY”
“Hands Free” is a short film produced by the Canadian Cancer Society,
Quebec Division. It presents with humour and realism the stages that a
person who decides to stop smoking must pass through (preparation,
withdrawal, maintenance). “Mouseology” is an animated short film
produced by the National Film Board of Canada. It relates the
adventures of someone trying to quit smoking and who is suffering from
cravings. The latter is symbolized by a little mouse living in her head
that tries to lure her to cigarettes.
Different pamphlets are distributed, providing information
on tobacco, pharmacological treatments, alternative methods, smoking
cessation guides, and resources available for smoking cessation in the
Montreal region. Also included are placemats listing the benefits of
smoking cessation within 20 minutes to 15 years, emphasising the
positive advantages to quit smoking.
