QUIT TOBACCO WITH NO-COST GROUP SESSIONS IN JUNE

By Audrey Stasko, Public Information Specialist

June 05, 2018

Quitting tobacco can be a lot easier when you know what to expect and have a strong support system to lean on. Take advantage of the Tobacco Free Florida Group Quit Sessions at two Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) centers in June. The face-to-face sessions are in a group setting, 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 June, 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.
