Smoking is an addiction—and a hard one to overcome.  But quitting is possible, and we know you can do it.  Let us help.  Join our eight-week quit smoking program, conveniently held at several locations in the DC area.  Led by a trained facilitator, the program will show you:

  • How to know if you’re ready to quit

  • Medications and lifestyle changes to make quitting easier

  • How to prepare for your quit day

  • Coping strategies for managing stress and avoiding weight gain

  • How to stay smoke-free for good

Freedom From Smoking Celebrations!

Our Freedom From Smoking Celebrations is how we support and celebrate tobacco users making the decision to start their quit journey! At the event, laptops will be provided for convenient registration for the ‘Freedom From Smoking Plus’ Program. This online program is a highly-interactive behavioral change program that addresses today’s mobile lifestyles. It works on laptops, tablets, desktops, and smartphones. The online program also includes telephone, chat and email support from trained tobacco cessation counselors. If the smoker is interested in an 8 session in-person group clinic, we can get them registered for one in the DC area that day as well.
