When my wife told me about Dr. Chasmawala’s Quit Tobacco Program, I was willing to try any thing because I had three ulcers in my mouth, which had not healed since six months. Luckily they tested negative for cancer! Within three days of starting the treatment, there was 30% reduction in the size of the ulcers and they vanished completely within ten days! Since then I have remained habit free and feel that my general health is much better. I am enjoying all the benefits of quitting as predicted.
