Free Quit Smoking Groups Begin this Month

It’s never too late to quit smoking.  Within 20 minutes of the last cigarette, the body goes through a series of positive changes to improve health that will continue for years to come.

The NSU Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program and the Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change Program offer group and individual programs designed to motivate and help smokers prepare to quit, select a quit date, and learn strategies and skills to quit and stay smoke-free, even in difficult situations.

The Quit Smoking Now program is FREE for NSU employees, students, and immediate family members.  Participants will also receive a FREE 6-week supply of non-prescription Nicotine Replacement Therapy (gum, patches) while supplies last.

Quit Smoking Now groups meet for 90 minutes weekly for 6 weeks. Groups meet from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Two new groups are forming now:

  • Wednesdays, Apr. 14 through May 19
  • Mondays, Apr. 19 through May 24

For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please call 954-262-5860 or email gsc@nova.edu.  All information is confidential.
