The Good News

The benefits of becoming a non-smoker to your health and lifestyle, as well as that of your family, are well worth the effort. Check out the list of benefits below.

The financial rewards are staggering. When a one-pack-a-day smoker quits they will save almost seven and a half thousand dollars ($7,500) every year. That's enough for a great annual holiday with the family or a new car every three years or so. If that smoker lives for another 30 years after quitting they will save the amazing amount of two hundred and twenty thousand dollars ($220,000). And that's at today's prices! They also have a better chance to live out those 30 (and probably more) years free from the diseases that smoking can cause.

When you Quit

Quit for Good

Giving up smoking is not enough - you need to become a non-smoker, because only non-smokers don't smoke. Don't be fooled into thinking that because you've simply given up cigarettes you can't become a smoker again. Research shows that more than 80% of smokers who quit and slip up, thinking that one or two won't hurt, return to full time smoking.*

Is it hard to become a non-smoker? It is much easier than stopping smoking, because while you are a smoker you need to smoke. Changing the habit means changing your attitude which brings about a change in behaviour.

Merganza's BANS Program is the only program that makes you a non-smoker for the rest of your life. You don't need will power you just need a burning desire to be free of the weed! You don't try to strop smoking - that's psychologically impossible for a smoker. You simply need the right conditioning to turn you back into a non-smoker - let's face it - you were born that way! BANS provides that for you.
