Griffin Hospital Offers Free Smoking Cessation Starting Sept. 2

By Janet Maurice on 8/13/2015

Looking to kick the habit?

Griffin Hospital is helping members of the community prepare to quit smoking with a free smoking cessation program starting Sept. 2.

“That’s It – Learn to Quit” teaches a variety of methods to help individuals quit smoking. The program consists of Wednesday night meetings from 5:30-7 p.m. scheduled for Sept. 2, 9, 16, and 23 at the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby.

“The goal of the program is to help you learn how to quit,” said Carrie O’Malley, RN, a co-coordinator of the program. “There are different methods of quitting and managing nicotine withdrawal. If one method didn’t work for you in the past we’ll help you understand all your options.”
Through group discussion and interactive activities, participants learn how to develop a quit plan that addresses their personal behaviors and habit. Strategies to manage nicotine withdrawal, behaviors, triggers, urges are all discussed as well as weight control and stress management.
