Learning how to stop smoking is like learning to walk. Every failure is an essential step toward success.
It’s easier with AMS Smoking Control Training!
Like toddlers learn to walk one step at a time, learning to control smoking is a one-day-at-a-time journey.
The first step in the journey to control smoking is to learn how to stop “power smoking”. Smokers are eager to initiate this first step because it is easy. Also, because it’s necessary toward earning their goal of former smoker status and, because they will spend 50% less on cigarettes.
More than 100,000 smokers employed at over 4,000 work sites have chosen to engage in AMS’ failure-free Smoking Control/Cessation Training. Yours will too.DISCOVER THE AMS DIFFERENCE

In 2005, an Ontario Ministry of Health study of the AMS System, conducted by Aon Consulting resulted in 23% fewer smokers at 12 months. Among those who didn’t quit the first year there were 18% fewer absent days because they learned to control when they smoke. Smokers’ in control are more productive. They don’t require or take extra outside smoke-breaks that cumulatively amount to 3 weeks* per year.

Yamaha identified with the program because it provided options for our smoking employees. They could either control their smoking or quit. Either way, we weren't making a program available to our emplyees that would create a sense of failure.
We felt that AMS had developed a great, habit management program that would improve the wellness of employees and create a safer working environment.
