Free Smoking Cessation Series (Class 5 of 9)
As part of Lourdes’ commitment to fostering healthy communities, Lourdes is pleased to announce a free smoking cessation series, beginning in June, for those interested in quitting smoking.
To help individuals make the decision to quit, the initial class will be the Kentucky Cancer Programs “Plan To Be Tobacco Free,” which is dedicated to helping tobacco users make the decision to quit and to guide them on the use of nicotine replacement and other assistance medications. With the support of Smoking Cessation Counselors trained in the American Lung Association’s Freedom from Smoking program, the rest of the class series is catered toward individuals who have made the decision and are ready to quit smoking. Most people know that smoking is dangerous to their health, but this program focuses almost exclusively on how to quit successfully, not why to quit. The program offers a structured, systematic approach to quitting, and its positive messaging emphasizes the benefits of better health.
The series is free and open to all tobacco users who want to quit.
Prior sign up is necessary to attend. Class sizes are limited to the first 20 people. To learn more or to sign up, please call 270-538-5867.
