I googled NiCA, and there is a meeting tonight, Sunday at 7pm at St. Paul's - 473 Cumberland Street, downtown Ottawa.  I have another commitment on Sunday's so I can't make it.  But thanks, I'll have to check out their webpage!  And I'll be calling your number Paul, tomorrow.  There are so few smokers left (good thing), so there's not much out there anymore (bad thing).

By the yard it's hard...by the inch it's a cinch!

Hello Capetownian and everyone in our community.

There are some excellent programs in the Ottawa area, including a group program in Renfrew at Mackay Manor. 

It runs every Tuesday from 7:00-8:00 pm, and every Wednesday from 9:00-10:30 am.

Please call us on Monday if you have time, and we can get you registered: 


Best regards,

Smokers' Helpline Online Support Team

 Hi Everyone, 
I am really struggling to get past day 1. While this site is great and quite inspirational, are there any face to face groups in the Ottawa Area. At some point there was a Nicotene Anonymous group, but when i went the meeting seemed to be disbanded. Anyone know of any? Anyone interested in starting one?
