Group courses are usually six weeks long and meet once a week for about an hour. They are usually run by smoking cessation practitioners and can be very effective. In the first session the members of the group introduce themselves, they review past attempts to quit, determine reasons for quitting and set a quit date for the group. At follow-up meetings, members discuss their progress, address any difficulties, swap coping tips, and encourage one another to stay quit. The smoking cessation practitioner will measure each member’s carbon monoxide levels (before and after quitting), their level of nicotine addiction, and recommend medical treatment.
