Freedom From Smoking 6 Week Program

Freedom From Smoking is a six-week program that will give you the tools you need to quit smoking for good. Each one-hour class is led by a trained facilitator in a small group setting, and you will receive a workbook and other informative materials along with free nicotine replacement therapies if you attend all six sessions. A few of the topics covered in the class include lifestyle changes that make quitting easier, managing stress, avoiding weight gain, and staying smoke-free for good. This class is available to ACC staff, spouses and ACC students (over the age of 18).
