Become Tobacco FreeThe Murray County Health Department is pleased to present:

THE AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION
FREEDOM FROM SMOKING ® STOP SMOKING CLINIC

Start Date: April 28th, 2009 at 12:00 p.m
Location: Murray County Health Department


Freedom From Smoking®
is a program to help tobacco users break their addiction.
This eight-session program:
  • Takes a step-by step approach to teaching smokers to quit;
  • Covers stress management, weight control issues and social situations;
  • Includes contact with quitters for a month after Quit Day;
  • Is facilitated by certified Instructors who understand the issues of quitting;
Freedom From Smoking® is based on the premise that smoking is a learned habit.
Smokers teach themselves to smoke and practice the experience until it becomes an
“automatic” behavior. A process in which smokers (and spit tobacco users) consciously
“un-learn” the automatic behavior, substituting healthy new alternatives is used in this
program.

If you would like to participate or need additional information, contact the Murray County
Health Department (706) 695-4585.
