Do you have a New Year’s resolution to quit using tobacco? Want to stop smoking or dipping? Tried to quit smoking before but always started again?   Isn’t it great to know that there is help, provided by the Guilford County Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health?

For four weeks, beginning on Wednesday, January 4, 2017, the Public Health Division will offer “QuitSmart,” an evidence-based, four-part tobacco use cessation class in Greensboro.

“Regardless of your age or how long you have smoked,” says Kim Herzing, QuitSmart facilitator and licensed mental health counselor, “I have seen many people successfully quit. It’s a combination of evidence-based techniques used in the QuitSmart program combined with the cohesiveness of the group that makes this class work.”

QuitSmart will be taught in four sessions, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 4, 11, 18, and 25, 2017. Participants must be present at the first session, and will be quitting together by the third session. Those who attend all four sessions will receive a certificate of completion.

This class is offered free of charge, but you must be pre-registered to attend. In order to register, please email kherzin@myguilford.com for details. If you do not have an email address, call 336-641-3723 to register.
