Prochaska and DiClemente on the common stages of change when quitting smoking

This abstract of their article summarizes the authors’ findings about the stages of change involved when changing smoking habits.

"My patients feel that they are being taught a great deal of important information in the Anticancer Lifestyle Program that they otherwise would not have been exposed to. They ultimately feel empowered and motivated to pursue significant lifestyle changes, and in most cases, these lifestyle changes are sustainable." --New Hampshire Medical Oncologist
Changes: I'm more centered in all the self-care aspects. Being more gentle to myself. Got a fit bit and am moving more. Meditating more. Continuing to chose love.
This is a super program and given the time allowed, much was covered.  We were encouraged to use our judgement and take it slowly and not "try to do all the changes" and that is a good thing.  The additional classes are also most helpful as they can help us focus and also as we gain strength, knowledge and capabilities, help us to keep on improving.
