Resolving to kick the habit this year?

This is the time of year when many of us resolve to do something to improve our health. For some of us, that means eating better or hitting the gym more often. For others, it means kicking the smoking habit.

Smoking CessationIf you or someone you know needs some help keeping that resolution, we offer the “Freedom from Smoking: Smoking Cessation Program.” This a free resource available to those in the community committed to quitting.

The six-week program is designed to guide participants through the entire process. You’ll learn how to plan for your quit date and how to identify your path to success.

Enrollment is now open for the session scheduled to begin Jan. 8 at the Barnard Health and Cancer Information Center on the main campus of the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. The group meets on Tuesday evenings.
