Want to Quit Smoking? Our Four-Part Program Starts Tomorrow

April 3, 2013

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 70 percent of smokers want to kick the habit. If you are among them, Oberlin’s on-site Smoking Cessation Class can get you started on the road to a tobacco-free life.

Free and open to all employees and members of their households, the series begins Thursday, April 4, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Wilder 112. Subsequent sessions will take place at the same time each Thursday in April.

The four-week class focuses on the tobacco habit, provides information on medications and other resources that are available, and helps participants develop strategies for quitting. To reap the full benefits of the class, participants should plan to attend all four sessions:

Part One: Understanding your Tobacco Habit
4:30 to 5:30 p.m. • Thu, Apr 4 • Wilder 112

Part Two: Behavioral and Psychological Components of Your Tobacco Habit
4:30 to 5:30 p.m. • Thu, Apr 11 • Wilder 112

Part Three: Strategies For Quitting
4:30 to 5:30 p.m. • Thu, Apr 18 • Wilder 101

Part Four: Maintaining Your Motivation
4:30 to 5:30 p.m. • Thu, Apr 25 • Wilder 112

The sessions will be facilitated by Warren Salkin of Behavioral Health Associates. The series is sponsored by the Office of Wellness and the Department of Human Resources and made possible through the CIGNA Employee Assistance Program.
