Freedom from Smoking is an educational series developed by the American Lung Association that emphasizes long-term freedom from smoking. According to Certified Facilitator Kai Schwab, BA, RPSGT, RST, each smoker who joins will develop an individual plan for quitting and learn the latest updates on stress management and pharmaceutical interventions.
“With 2015 fast approaching, many people will be making resolutions to kick their smoking habit,” Schwab said. “I strongly encourage anyone considering quitting to attend this session. This program is focused on providing the tools necessary for not only breaking the smoking habit, but finding alternative ways to cope with stress.”
Schwab said that even if people have been unsuccessful in the past with quitting smoking, they should try this program. “Nicotine is a very addictive substance and it’s readily available in many retail stores,” Schwab explained. “The Freedom from Smoking Class can help smokers with proven steps to make quitting more successful. What better way to start off 2015 than by working towards a healthier you!”
The Freedom from Smoking Class will be offered for seven weeks with class meeting every Tuesday, beginning Jan. 6 through Feb. 17, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm on the MHP campus in Oskaloosa.
