The way you should be treated.™

Millions have quit smoking, chewing, vaping and stopped using e-cigarettes, and you can quit too.

Quitting cold turkey on the spur of the moment may work for some people, but you’ll improve your chances of success by participating in a smoking cessation class taught by healthcare providers.

There is no better time to quit!

  • Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of premature death and disease in the United States.
  • 16 million Americans live with a smoking - related disease.
  • Tobacco use substantially increases the risk of developing cancer, coronary heart disease and stroke.

Silver Cross Hospital offers the American Lung Association’s Freedom from Smoking program to help you develop a quit plan, manage withdrawal symptoms and learn coping strategies and skills to remain tobacco free.

  • Weekly group meetings to develop a quit plan.
  • Group classes that feature a mixture of tobacco education, cessation planning and time for a support group, where everyone can share their experiences along their path to quitting tobacco.

Class topics include:

  • Lifestyle changes to help make quitting easier
  • Preparing for “quit day”
  • Managing stress and avoiding weight gain

Freedom from Smoking includes follow-up support that helps prevent relapse.
