QUIT TOBACCO WITH NO-COST GROUP SESSIONS IN MAY

By Audrey Stasko, Public Information Specialist

April 24, 2018

Quitting tobacco is hard and may take several attempts—don’t go at it alone. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) is partnering with Tobacco Free Florida to provide Quit Your Way Group Sessions at two of its centers in May. The group sessions are open to the public and presented by the Gulfcoast North Area Health Education Center (GNAHEC) at no cost.

Two-hour sessions at DOH-Pinellas centers will be held on these dates:

In addition to the group sessions, tobacco users who want to quit can also receive nicotine replacement patches, gum and lozenges at no cost (while supplies last and if medically appropriate). The sessions provide information on how to prepare a plan to quit, how to deal with cravings and what to expect during the process. The programs cover all forms of tobacco.

During May, numerous classes are held at other locations in Pinellas County, too. Registration is required. For information about other sessions or to register, call (813) 929-1000 or email info@gnahec.org. Go to www.tobaccofreeflorida.com/quityourway for other resources.
