• Stop Smoking...Start Living  

    Quitting smoking is not about just breaking a “bad habit.” It is about changing your life so cigarettes are no longer a part of it. Our three week program “Stop Smoking...Start Living” is designed to empower you to:

    • Identify what triggers your smoking and make lasting changes that will keep you smoke free.
    • Live more in the moment so you can respond — rather than react — to thoughts, feelings and situations that would normally trigger smoking. 
    • Develop communication skills to help you get the most from your support system. 
    • Utilize coping techniques to offset any nicotine cravings. 
    • Relax deeply and affirm living a smoke-free life. 
    • Cope with stress in ways that improve your overall well-being. 


    Stop Smoking...Start Living Support Group meets on the first Wednesday of each month (6 - 7:30 PM) at the Center for Living and is open to all program graduates!
