Free Smoking Cessation Program - That's It, Learn to Quit!

Event Start Date: 7/1/2020 5:30 PM

Event End Date: 7/1/2020 7:00 PM

Griffin Hospital offers free education, advice and support to help individuals prepare to quit smoking with its four-week smoking cessation program.

“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.  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 Richard Le Pera, 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 habits. Strategies to manage nicotine withdrawal, behaviors, triggers, and urges are discussed as well as weight control.

Participants must be prepared to attend all four sessions.

To register for “That’s It – Learn to Quit,” call 203-732-7106.
