Great American Smokeout

| Date Posted: 11/20/2014

The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on November 20, 2014 by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

FirstHealth's FirstQuit tobacco cessation program is a comprehensive program using the latest techniques to assist tobacco users through the process of quitting smoking, chewing and other forms of tobacco use.

The program includes:

  • Customized quit plan
  • Small group and one-to-one health education
  • Identification of triggers
  • Coping strategies
  • Medications (Nicotine patches, gum and lozenges)
  • Regular support groups

Fees run from $5 to $50, based on household income. Programs are offered in Hoke, Moore, Montgomery and Richmond counties. For more information call toll-free (888) 534-5333.
