Our smoking class does not try to fix you, change you or tell you to quit smoking. Our smoking class does not judge you. Our smoking class does not try to force anything on you and have no intent of imposing change on you. Critical to our values is the need to: a) be respectful, b) not be judgmental, c) not try to impose "the truth"and d) not try to impose change. Our smoking class is education oriented. Any change that comes as a result of taking our smoking classes is change that the client makes.
Q: Tell me about the online smoking class.
A: It really is pretty simple. The first thing you do is get registered so you can take your online smoking class - it's free to register. Try not to register more than one time, you will likely lose track of usernames and passwords and need to call our help center.
When you register you will be asked to input your email address. This becomes important because after you register for the online smoking class you will be sent an auto generated email confirming your registration. If you don't get an email right away I suggest you check your spam or junk-mail to see if it is there. You will also be asked for the email address of the person who referred you to our smoking class (If you have it). It is usually worth taking the time to get that person's email address because that person is sent a confirmation that you got registered for the smoking class and again when you complete your smoking class.
Once you are registered you need to pick the smoking class.
