STOP SMOKING VACATIONS
“My husband has promised me he’ll take that long-overdue vacation if I make a New Year’s Resolution to stop smoking. I’ve heard there are resorts that have stop smoking programs. Can I combine our vacation with his challenge?” — Carol Davies, W.V.
Support from family members is a valuable tool to any new health, wellness or fitness regime, and smoking cessation is no exception. You didn’t specify where you want to take your vacation, or what your budget is, so we’ve given you several suggestions.
If you can travel outside of your area and treat yourselves you should visit Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Located in Lenox, the program addresses the physical and psychological aspects of smoking cessation, taking you from withdrawal to controlling urges to relapse prevention.
If you’ve got your passports ready, it isn’t that much more expensive to leave the USA and fly to Portugal or Turkey and visit well known medical spa destinations for an all-inclusive health and fitness vacation, including Stop Smoking. Don’t immediately say “I can’t afford that” because, by way of example, a few months ago, our airfare from California to London cost less than our subsequent airfare from California to Miami, Florida.
Natur-Med Hot Springs and Health Resort on the Aegean hillside in Turkey, is that country’s first medical and health destination spa. The resort offers body-mind-spirit rejuvenation, purification and anti-aging programs, treatments for chronic diseases, weight loss programs, pain treatments and smoking cessation programs. Natur-Med offers SpaFlyer readers this promotional offer for discounted add-spa treatments, as well.
