“Nicotine Free,” a series of five smoking cessation classes in a supportive group environment will begin Wednesday, Sept. 26, according to a release.

The classes span four weeks and will be held at Oak Ridge Apartments., 228 Sutton Way, Grass Valley.

Classes are facilitated by JoAnn Chatlien, a health educator.

The cost for the series is $60.

Chatlien said the classes will offer tools to help people quit for good.

Participants learn replacement strategies, develop new habits, new activities and how to make plans for a new healthy lifestyle.

“There is a life after cigarettes,” Chatlien said.

If people use the tools, the new normal that they create will be healthier, craving-free, and money-saving, she said.

“It is a positive to make the attempt,” Chatlien said. “There is no failure — just keep trying. Eventually you will succeed.”

The class schedule is as follows: All classes will take place between 5:30-6:30 p.m. and will be held on Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 8, 10, and the final class will be held Oct. 17.
