The American Lung Association’s ‘Freedom from Smoking’ Workshop is a smoking cessation program designed to help participants overcome tobacco addiction so they can enjoy the benefits of better health, extra money in their pocket and healthier relationships. Ongoing support and counseling are vital if participants are going to be successful in maintaining their freedom from smoking.

By the end of the workshop, participants will know how to prepare for Quit Day, manage stress better, avoid weight gain and develop a new self-image. As an incentive to attend all 8 sessions, participants will be qualified to receive free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (lozenges & gum) valued at approximately $50.
