The American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® program is for tobacco users who are ready to quit. Because most people already know that smoking is bad for their health, the program focuses almost exclusively on how to quit, not why to quit.

Freedom From Smoking classes provide group treatment for tobacco dependence and consist of 8 sessions over the course of 7 weeks. The group prepares for a shared “quit day” (session 4) by learning about medications that can help them stop, lifestyle changes that make quitting easier, and how to stay smoke-free for good. As the weeks continue you will receive structured support and advice from fellow group members and staff.

What you can expect–

Session One: Thinking about quitting

Session Two: Learning not to smoke

Session Three: Wanting to Quit

Session Four: Quit Day

Session Five (Note: takes place during the same week as Quit Day for extra support): Winning Strategies

Session Six: The New You

Session Seven: Staying Off

Session Eight: Celebration
