Griffin Health is offering two sessions of its free tobacco cessation programs starting July 16 and 17

Griffin Health offers education, advice and support to help individuals prepare to quit smoking with upcoming sessions of its free tobacco cessation program.

That’s It – Learn to Quit” teaches a variety of methods to help individuals quit smoking over the course of six weekly meetings. There will be a session held Tuesdays mornings July 16-Aug. 20 from 10-11:30 a.m. at The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby, and another session set for Wednesday evenings July 17-Aug. 21 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Griffin Hospital, 130 Division St., Derby.

The program encourages participants to acknowledge and honor past successes in their goal to quit tobacco. The goal is to help individuals learn how to stop using tobacco without the guilt, shame, and fear of failure by teaching several different methods of quitting and managing nicotine withdrawal. Through group discussion and interactive activities, participants learn how to develop a quit plan that addresses their personal behaviors and habits. Strategies to manage nicotine withdrawal, behaviors, triggers, and urges are discussed as well as weight control and stress management.

Participants must be prepared to attend all six sessions. To register, visit griffinhealth.org/tobacco-cessation or call 203-732-1369.
