Pre-Planning for Smoking Cessation – Free Introduction offered

Do you really want to stop smoking? Is it time to quit smoking now, for good? Are you tired of wishing you didn’t smoke?

If you answered yes, the SNMH Wellness Smoking Cessation Program might be for you.

The seven-class series is designed to help motivate smoking cessation and encourage behavioral changes.

The next session begins Jan. 9 and is offered for a $60 program fee. More information on the Smoking Cessation Series is available by calling (530) 274-6124.

New for 2013, SNMH Wellness has added a free course in between the Smoking Cessation Series.

Come learn about techniques and strategies to assist you as you plan to quit.

“These free planning sessions are great for the individual that is eager to quit and waiting for the next Smoking Cessation Series to begin,” Debbie Wagner, SNMH director of wellness said.

The class also provides techniques and advice to family members or friends of a smoker that would like to encourage and support their loved one with their cessation journey.

Attendees can expect to receive tips and ideas of action that can be taken as they prepare to quit.

“For example,” Wagner explained, “make a few healthy changes now. By making a positive lifestyle change like increased exercise or healthy diet, the transition to a non-smoker will be the next natural step toward wellness.”

The free Pre-Planning for Smoking Cessation course, instructed by JoAnn Chatlien, will be held on March 20, June 19 and Nov. 13 from 5:30-7 p.m. in the SNMH Outpatient Center Conference Rooms.

For more information or to pre-register, call (530) 274-6124 or email Space will be limited, so reserve your spot early.
