London says most participants are shocked to learn they aren't expected to quit smoking after their first class.
"If you don't know how to swim, an instructor is not going to throw you in the water. First, we discover what their trigger points are for smoking. We give them tools on how to avoid smoking and redirect themselves," explains London. People who quit cold turkey can be setting themselves up for failure, she says.
By week three, the class is ready to stop smoking.
London will bring a "big, ugly black box" to class during the third week so students can deposit items like ashtrays, cigarettes they haven't smoked and even "goodbye letters" to cigarettes.
Each week, participants are encouraged to share their stories of both struggle and success. They often provide advice to one another. London also invites graduates of the program to come in and share their stories.
"Those people are very engaged and know what current attendees are going through," she says.

How it works:
"The first thing is you must decide you want to quit," said London. "It sounds really simple, but I have had folks who haven't decided and they usually drop out. You have to decide."

As soon as they quit smoking, people in the class often notice immediate benefits.
"They start to smell things they didn't smell before, food tastes better, they all look refreshed," said London. "I tell them they look younger, because it's the truth."
Those who quit smoking keep their eyes on the prize, whether it's reducing long-term healthcare costs or watching their grandchildren grow up. The clinic's approach doesn't use criticism or scare tactics to discourage smoking.
