“That’s It – Learn to Quit” teaches a variety of methods to help individuals quit smoking. The program consists of Wednesday night meetings from 5:30-7 p.m. scheduled for Aug.1, 8, 15 and 22 at the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby. There also is a “reunion” for graduates of the program on Aug. 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Center.
“The goal of the program is to help you learn how to quit,” said program co-coordinatorRichard Le Pera. “There are different methods of quitting and managing nicotine withdrawal. If one method didn’t work for you in the past we’ll help you understand all your options.”
Through group discussion and interactive activities, participants learn how to develop a quit plan that addresses their personal behaviors and habits. Strategies to manage nicotine withdrawal, behaviors, triggers, and urges are discussed as well as weight control and stress management.
Participants must be prepared to attend all four sessions.
