Free program to help smokers quit begins Thursday, August 31

You can be a quitter!

Winona Health is offering a free program to help people who want to quit smoking. The four-week program begins Thursday, August, 31, 2017.

“Quitting is definitely a challenge, but the payoff is worth the effort,” said Lynn Sprain MS, RT, RCEP, in the Cardiac Rehabilitation department at Winona Health. “Quitting pays off in improved health and provides relief from dependency on cigarettes or tobacco—and relief from the high cost of smoking.”

Winona Health’s smoking cessation program will:

  • Help individuals recognize and understand their reasons for smoking.
  • Cover the variety of benefits to quitting.
  • Provide ways to handle physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms.
  • Share tips and techniques for becoming and remaining smoke free.
  • Provide a supportive atmosphere for you to ask questions and get helpful information.

“The benefits of quitting are immediate.” said Sprain. “Whether this is your first time trying to quit, or you’ve tried several times before, this program is for you.”

This free program includes four sessions meeting Thursday evenings from August 31 through September 21, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Winona Health, 855 Mankato Avenue, Parkview Conference Room, hospital first floor.

RSVP is appreciated, but walk-ins the first night of the program will be welcome as space permits. To sign up, call 507.457.4161, or sign up here!
