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.
