Tobacco cessation class starting soon

March 10, 2011

WorkLife Programs is offering a class designed to help people have success quitting smoking.

Beginning March 15 and running through April 28, the six-week Quit Smart class will meet from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at WorkLife Programs (PWF), 1402 W. State St. Amber Simons, worklife wellness specialist, will lead the class.

Quit Smart combines powerful treatments to help participants break free from tobacco. Participants attending this class will learn to ease off nicotine, use their mind to help, use a hypnosis CD and decide whether to use medication to break the habit.

To register for Quit Smart or other offerings, go to and log in with your career account and password, or call WorkLife Programs at 49-45461.

In addition to the in-person classes, WorkLife Programs also has a variety of cessation resources available through its online resource center. From links to helpful community resources such as the Kathryn Weil Center to brochures like “Quitting for Life,” there are materials available to support and supplement smoke-free living.

To use the resource center, visit and log in with career account and password. On the left navigation bar, click on Resource Center. Read the instructions provided, pick your resources, and complete an order.

Please note that some items are sent via campus mail, some must be picked up at the WorkLife Programs office at 1402 W. State St., and others are available for immediate download.

Materials may be sent only via campus mail; therefore, spouses/same-sex domestic partners and retirees are not able to check out materials.
