To help people who believe this is the right time for them to quit smoking, the American Cancer Society’s quit-smoking program, Freshstart, is being offered at no charge on five consecutive Thursdays, April 3, 10, 17, and 24, and May 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the classroom at Waldo County General Hospital (located on the ground floor near the cafeteria).
Freshstart is designed for the adult smoker and emphasizes that smoking cessation is a two-step process: stopping and staying stopped. Therefore, techniques and support are shared to help keep a smoker off cigarettes.
The program is free and addresses the variety of reasons people smoke: physical addiction, habit and psychological dependency.
For more information and to register for these free classes, call Barbara Crowley at 930-2650 and leave your name and telephone number or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A minimum of four participants are needed to hold the class.
The classes are sponsored by Waldo County General Hospital.
