Freedom From Smoking

What is Freedom From Smoking?

A FREE seven week tobacco cessation program that offers a structured, systematic approach to quitting. It has a positive focus, with an emphasis on the benefits of better health. Because no single cessation technique is effective for all smokers, the program includes a comprehensive variety of evidence-based cessation techniques.

Why Freedom From Smoking?

Evaluation studies have shown that individuals who participate in Freedom from Smoking:

  • Experience immediate health benefits.
  • Learn to address the physical, mental, and social aspects of their addiction.
  • Are six times more likely to be smoke-free one year later than those who quit on their own.
  • When used in combination with smoking cessation medication, up to 60% of participants report having quit smoking by the end of the program.

Is the Freedom From Smoking program for you?

  • Do you want to quit tobacco?
  • Is quitting tobacco a priority for you?
  • Have you tried to quit tobacco before?
  • Do you believe that smoking is dangerous to your health?
  • Are you committed to trying to quit even though it may be tough?
  • Do you need a support system to help you quit tobacco?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Freedom From Smoking program is for you!
