The group format encourages participants to work on the process and problems of quitting both individually and as part of a group. A workbook and other informative materials are provided.

Topics covered include: 

  • Lifestyle changes to help you quit
  • Preparing for "quit day"
  • Managing stress
  • Avoiding weight gain
  • Developing a new self-image
  • Staying smoke-free for good

The Freedom From Smoking program is designed for people who are ready and willing to quit. That doesn’t mean it’s easy—even those who want to quit often find it very difficult to do so. Participants in this program will receive personalized attention and benefit from the support of a small group of peers, who are going through the same stages at the same time.
