  • Understand the benefits of being smoke-free.
  • Develop a personalized quit plan
  • Learn stress management techniques and how to deal with withdrawal symptoms.
  • Obtain information on the benefits of nicotine replacement therapy.
  • Receive FREE nicotine replacement therapy such as the gum, patches, or lozenges.
  • Have support from American Lung Association certified instructors who will  help you through the quit process.

Our FREE Support Groups are targeted to the following individuals wanting to quit:

  • Pregnant Women
