FREE Quit Smoking Now Program

Decades of research show that quitting tobacco use can be the single most important thing an individual can do for their health. Non-smokers live on average 10 years longer than smokers.

Quitting is not just good for your health, it’s also good for your wallet. The average pack-a-day smoker in Florida spends more than $2,000 a year on cigarettes. 

Join Florida Hospital Flagler for a free six-week Quit Smoking Now Program on Thursdays from February 8 - March 15 at 5:30pm. The class provides participants with relevant education, support, and resources in a group setting. Each participant is given a participant workbook, and a quit bag with items such as stress ball, water bottle, worry stone. A trained Tobacco Treatment Specialist facilitates the class to assist participants in their transition into a life without tobacco.

 Topics that are addressed during the program include:

•Why do you use tobacco?

•The benefits of quitting

•Identifying triggers & how to handle them

•Stress management

•How to cope with withdrawal from nicotine 

•Selecting a quit date

•Detailed description of available nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs)

•How to avoid “slips” and “relapses” 

•Additional support resources

Free four-week supply of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (patch, lozenge or gum) is also provided to each registered participant.

Pre-registration is required. To register, call 877-784-8486 today!
