  • “Mama, please stop smoking. Don’t you want to be here to see your grandchildren?”

    In 2005, my 8 year old son came to me sobbing “Mama, please stop smoking. Don’t you want to be here to see your grandchildren?” He had never said anything to me about smoking until this moment but his dad had died suddenly the previous year from a heart attack at the age of 38. Although, I did not want to quit, I knew I had to. I was a 30 year smoker, smoking almost 2 packs a day. Previously, I worked with 4 nurses that had all “somehow” successfully quit, so I called to see how they did it. They had all been to The STOP Clinic in Cary. I called, made an appointment and Leslie gave me the preparation exercises to start her program. I smoked my last cigarette the night before I went for my first treatment. My first session was on a Wednesday afternoon. On Saturday, I realized that I had not even thought about a cigarette. Sunday, I started getting a little anxious but went for the second session on Monday. After that, I would think about a cigarette about once every week or two. The thought would last just a few fleeting seconds. Within a couple of months, I hardly thought of a cigarette and I knew that smoking was a thing of the past for me. It has now been over 10 years and I can truly say, it was almost easy to quit smoking, especially, compared to the previous methods I had tried several times before. I contribute my success to The STOP Clinic. Thank you , Leslie. Quitting smoking has added tremendously to my quality of life.

  • "I went from over two packs a day to zero after my first visit."

    It was almost seven years ago that I had my last “KOOL FILTER KING” after seeing Leslie Lyon at The STOP Clinic. I went from over two packs a day to zero after my first visit. I had sudden, instantaneous thoughts about lighting up for a while, but the thoughts became weaker and further apart until they were completely gone and I had no more desire to smoke. My nicotine addiction was gone!! The benefits of being smoke-free are countless … It’s easier to pray, so I can have a better relationship with God; my home smells better; my clothes smell better; I feel better … and the list goes on and on. I thank God for Leslie Lyon and I thank her for having presented herself to such a worthy cause and for helping me to overcome an enormous obstacle in my life. Now my grandchildren will not grow up watching Papa smoke.

  • "After my second treatment the pain was completely gone and I felt like I could 'run a marathon.'"

    After smoking for 48 years, I found The STOP Clinic. NANCY NEIGHBORS 2011 I was having sharp shoulder pain and sciatic pain in my back and leg. For the previous 2 years, I had chiropractic help on a weekly basis. I hurt so bad, I could not lay on my back. Since I was a “die hard” and addicted smoker”, I chose the combination, smoking and food programs. I knew I needed some serious help. When I signed up, I did not realize the treatments would help with my chronic pain. Leslie mentioned that my pain might go away, but she did not promise. During the treatments, I could feel the pain leaving my body. Every night before bed, I would worry and wonder when the sharp pain would wake me up. Each morning, I woke up and thought, “When is it going to start hurting again?” The pain never came back. After my second treatment the pain was completely gone and I felt like I could “run a marathon”. I had no nicotine cravings after the first time I left your office. This “blows me away”. There may be a thought … but there was NO craving. I feel this was a miracle that I found you. I feel as though I have never smoked and I can’t believe my chronic pain is gone. I am glad my friends are coming in to work with you, too.
