Can vaping help nicotine addicts kick the tobacco habit? Maybe in some cases, says Joseph Erban, the JGH’s Smoking Cessation Counsellor. But he opposes using vaping products for this purpose, because they haven’t undergone proper testing or quality control.
In early 1969, Dr. Richard Margolese wrote an impassioned letter that played a pivotal role in a decision by the hospital’s Board of Directors to ban the sale of cigarettes on its premises.
As organizations across Quebec and Canada become increasingly interested in developing campaigns to help smokers kick the habit, many have been looking to the example set by the JGH Smoking Cessation Program.
