Freedom from smoking Zoom workshop
Finding a path to a smoke-free life is easier with the right help. The American Lung Association’s “Freedom from Smoking” program is a proven way to quit smoking — and stay quit.
The free eight-class series starts January 5, live via Zoom. Over the course of the workshop, participants will set a quit date, build a quit plan, and work together to stay tobacco-free. Freedom from Smoking focuses on how to quit, not why to quit. People have different reasons for smoking and will have different ways of quitting, too. It’s all about putting a plan in place that will work best for each individual. The class includes strategies for identifying triggers, managing stress, and avoiding weight gain. Participants will also learn how tools like quit-smoking medications can increase the chances of quitting.
Designed by the American Lung Association, the Freedom from Smoking workshop has helped hundreds of thousands of Americans end their nicotine addiction over the last 35 years.
Classes will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will need to have internet access and a device with a microphone and camera.
Class dates include January 5, 12, 19, 26 , 28 and February 2, 9 and 16. All classes are from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. For more information or to register, call Connecting Point at 530-274-5601 or register online at http://www.connectingpoint.org/events.
