Consider the following case for discussion: Lloyd is a 25 year old construction
Consider the following case for discussion:
Lloyd is a 25 year old construction worker. He is not married and does not have children. He has been seeing a woman for about a year now.
Lloyd is a smoker and has been smoking for the last 7 years. He knows that smoking is not a good idea, but rationalizes his decision to smoke, indicating that it helps him deal with stress and other issues. Although Lloyd has not obtained treatment for smoking, he does want to quit, especially before he pops the question to his girlfriend.
As a health and wellness specialist, advocate for Lloyd in terms of quitting smoking. Explain what you know about smoking and why people smoke. What could Lloyd do to replace the smoking behavior? What would be a healthier alternative to stress management? Finally, explain to Lloyd, the best treatment and cessation programs available in the process.
