Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death.
- Cigarette smoking is responsible for about one in five deaths annually (i.e. more than 440,000 deaths per year and an estimated 49,000 of these smoking-related deaths are the result of second hand smoke).
- On average, smokers die 10 years earlier than non-smokers.
- The cigarette industry spent a total of $8.37 billion in 2011 on advertising and promotions.
- From 2000–2004, cigarette smoking cost more than $193 billion (i.e., $97 billion in lost productivity plus $96 billion in health care expenditures).
- Information published in 2005 documented that secondhand smoke cost more than $10 billion (i.e. health care expenditures, morbidity, and mortality).
Research shows that the best way for people to quit smoking is through evidence-based smoking cessation technologies and programs.
Tobacco treatment is one of the most cost-effective preventive services, providing a substantial return on investment in the short and long term. Investments in smoking cessation lead to improved health outcomes, resulting in lower health care costs and more affordable health insurance premiums. Tobacco cessation treatment will become increasingly important as providers, employers, insurers and the state look to improve the public’s health and reduce the total cost of health care.
Smoke-Free For Life, a division of FLOWLAB, is a Los Angeles based company specializing in online smoking cessation seminars and related products. Our seminars allow smokers of any age to successfully quit smoking with a 5-hour session in multi-participant workshop events or from the privacy of their own home. The techniques used in our program have helped millions of people kick the smoking habit. Our method uses completely safe and non-intrusive linguistic based education in conjunction with a series of psychological exercises based on Eriksonian therapeutic techniques.
Neuroscientific discoveries over the last twenty years have proven conclusively that permanent positive change can be achieved by implementing a variety of brain entrainment technologies (subliminal suggestion, isochronic tones), and evidence-based education effectively builds new neural pathways in the brain.
Smoke-Free For Life incorporates these powerful motivational tools to create a revolutionary smoking cessation program that delivers results. The combination of these tools provides each client with a powerful experience that allows their subconscious mind to accept and process the information in the program, which leads to positive change. That change, in this case, is the complete elimination of the urge to smoke.
We have a 81% success rate helping clients live smoke free. For those that do not succeed the first time, we offer additional phone support and our online resources.
