Smoking is the leading actual "cause of death" in the U.S.; and these deaths are preventable. Science-based programs to help individuals stop smoking are important interventions for public health and the healthcare delivery community. The Cooper/Clayton Method is being implemented by every health department and the Kentucky Cancer Program throughout the state. As the former Director of Cancer Control in Kentucky, it is apparent to me that the Cooper/Clayton program is the most popular and respected cancer control initiative in Kentucky.

3 Questions EVERY smoker needs to ask

1. Do you remember why you started smoking?
2. Do the reasons you started smoking still exist?
3. Have you ever considered you might be better off as a nonsmoker?

Future Plans
for the Cooper/Clayton Method to Stop Smoking.
June 16, 2015, was the 30th anniversary of the first support group meeting of the Cooper/Clayton Method to Stop Smoking. Many individuals have contributed to the success of the program over those years. The time has come, however, to make a drastic change.

Effective immediately, we will no longer be the source for the books, DVDs, manuals etc. used by facilitators we trained. We are contributing the existing materials to the following agencies:

Fayette County Health Department

Jefferson County Health Department

KCP University of Kentucky

KCP University of Louisville

To secure these materials, contact the appropriate agency.

We are currently revising the scripts for the DVD and, some time during the next 12 months, hope to create a digital only version of the 13-session program. Stay tuned to this website for updates.

Thanks and best wishes,
