Sometimes best intentions don’t always go according to plan. Quitting smoking is no different. For some smokers, it takes several attempts to quit for good;  slips and relapses are common among people trying to quit smoking.

And while quitting isn’t easy for anyone, some studies show that women have a harder time quitting than men.

To support the women in our communities that smoke, Knox County Community Health Coalition (KCCHC) is offering  free tobacco cessation classes. Using the American Cancer Society’s FreshStart program, KCCHC’s Tobacco Specialist, Molly Stone, will provide a series of women’s only tobacco cessation classes.

The series consists of four 2-hour classes, held from 5-7 pm  on November 5, 12, 19 and 26th at the Flannagan Center (the Rockland Rec Center), 61 Limerock St. in Rockland.

The first hour of each class will focus on getting ready to create a successful Quit plan; the second hour will be spent learning ways to reduce the stress of quitting such as reflexology, self-massage, and how to make healthy snacks.

If you’ve tried to quit in the past, if you’ve had a slip or a relapse – don’t give up! You can be successful and have a tobacco-free life.

For more information and to register for the program, please contact Molly Stone, at 236-6313, ex. 3 or mstonekcchc@gmail.com

Remember, don’t quit quitting!
