Congratulations! Quitting smoking is a big deal and you are taking the first step to a healthier lifestyle by learning about what resources are available to you! The Office of Health Promotion is offering the American Lung Association's (ALA) Freedom From Smoking program FREE to Kent State students (Kent Campus). This is a comprehensive smoking cessation program that has been around for more than 30 years!
The ALA's Freedom From Smoking Program runs on an as-needed basis and consists of 7 weekly meetings between you and the program facilitator. If there are multiple people interested at the same time, this program may run as a small group setting.
The first 3 weeks of the program are dedicated to students learning about their own individual smoking pattern and preparing to quit. Week 4 of the program is Quit Day where students put their plan into action and officially quit tobacco. The remaining weeks of the program focus on students 'staying quit' and their new tobacco free lifestyle.
To sign-up for the program or if you have any additional questions, please call Scott Dotterer at 330-672-8266 or via email at sbaker70 [at] kent.edu.
