About Dr. Tom Ferguson

No two smokers are exactly alike. You, as a health-concerned smoker, must take control of your smoking in your own way and in your own time.

Researchers agree that smoking is a major health hazard. The good news is that smokers can reduce their risk of disease. Quitting smoking is the obvious way to reduce your smoking related risk of disease. However, if you are not ready to quit, other techniques are available to help reduce your risk: limiting the number of cigarettes smoked and increasing your overall wellness level. kicksmok.gif (10607 bytes)

So are you ready?

The first step is to complete the confidential Smoker Survey. The main objective is to get you to reflect on your smoking habit, and to learn more about your readiness to quit smoking. After you submit the completed survey, you will receive a comprehensive Stop Smoking Audio Program, on loan for up to 3 months.

Other helpful online resources include excerpts from my book, No-Nag, No-Guilt, Do-It-Your-Own-Way Guide to Quitting Smoking, and our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's). If that is not enough, remember, our experts are only an e-mail message away.
