July 12, 2009 - PRLog -- Finally, out of British Columbia comes new hope for those who want to quit smoking for good. The reasons for stopping smoking are well known. The physical addiction is indisputable. There is an abundance of data demonstrating dramatic reductions in morbidly and mortality, accompanied by improvements in all indicators of quality of life in those who quit smoking. Most smokers have tried stopping many times; it's staying stopped that's the problem. Or stopping starting. There are about as many smoking cessation methods and programs as there are brands of cigarettes. One reason they are notoriously unsuccessful is that they are attempted at home while continuing to experience the same stressors and triggers.

A new way has been introduced by A Home Away Retreat in British Columbia. Take a summer retreat vacation and quit smoking at the same time. According to John Derry, A Home Away Director, "smoking cessation doesn't have to be difficult or uncomfortable."

The retreat offers all inclusive summer fun, recreational activities, and enjoyment of the natural beauty of British Columbia. Along with luxury accommodation, and gourmet meals..."quitting smoking is remarkably easy", says Derry. The AHA way is drug free, natural, and a vacation, all in one. "Nicotine is a powerful drug, and replacing it with another is counterproductive" says Derry, a licensed pharmacist by profession. Proven counselling and holistic therapies accompany the process. “With our help, our guests can be rid of their nicotine addiction while playing in the sunshine of the Okanagan Valley, rejuvenating around our pool, or taking our chocolate lab, Cocoa, for walks. We like to think of it as taking a break while breaking free.”

Retreats are one or two weeks in length, and begin August 2, 2009. "We are expecting a huge demand and enrolment is limited, so book now", says Derry. "There will never be a better time, and you won't ever have a better time stopping smoking!” remarked John Derry.

A Home Away has a track record of success with helping people stop smoking. “We guarantee success. If one of our guests relapses within 12 months, they will be given a full repeat program free of charge."
