Hotels Help You Kick Butt During Lung Cancer Awareness Month

While hotels had plenty of seemingly self-serving and more cutesy-than-caring promotions for October's Breast Cancer Month, many are taking a more serious and hands-on approach during November's Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

Hotels across the globe are opening their doors and inviting guests to take a proactive approach to end their smoking habits once and for all and reduce their chances of lung cancer, which, according to the Lung Cancer Alliance, "is the deadliest cancer in the world that takes more lives than breast, colon, pancreatic and prostate cancer combined."

Is quitting smoking on your New Year's resolution list? A trip to the UK might be in order.

The Champneys Kick the Habit three-night program in Hertfordshire and Hampshire tackles both the psychological and physiological aspects of addiction with three 55-minute hypnotherapy sessions, full use of the spa facilities and up to 20 different classes per day. You won't be alone - smoking remains the biggest cause of premature death in England and is responsible for the loss of more than 100,000 lives in the UK every year.

How about a sojourn to Australia to beat addiction? First time visitors get 25% off treatment sessions at Chuan Spa (The Langham Melbourne), including a consultation by a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner to interpret your states of well-being and apply relative treatments to combat compulsive smoking.

Portugal's Vilalara Resort attempts to kick butt with their six-day Anti-Smoking Cure package involving thalassotherapy, auriculotherapy, and acupuncture treatments.

If you want to stay within the United States, the Regency Health Resort in Florida and its year-round, five-day Smoking Cessation Program is designed to help people quit via juice detoxification, Tai Chi, yoga, and daily therapeutic sessions.

So why not give it the old college try this winter? Hey, even if you don't end up quitting, it'll be the most fun attempt to date.
