Anyone who has tried quitting smoking knows giving up cigarettes can be an extremely difficult challenge.  That is why Samaritan Medical Center is offering FREE smoking cessation classes to the North Country community.

The class is led by Terra Thompson- Reed, a private smoking cessation specialist who owns Best Life Consulting. She has had 12 years of experience in tobacco control and has helped many people from both Jefferson and Lewis Counties quit smoking. Her services are designed to teach smokers how to prepare to be a non-smoker by providing proven skills and techniques to quit smoking.  Participants will learn what their level of addiction is and will leave with their own personal “prescription for success.”

Monthly classes have been scheduled throughout 2015:

July 16th
August 20th
September 17th
October 15th
November 19th
December 17th

All classes will be held:
Beginning at 6 p.m. 
at the Samaritan Outpatient Clinic
Samaritan Medical Plaza
1575 Washington St., Door A, Watertown, NY  13601

If you have further questions and you want to reserve your seat, please call 315-779-5060. Reservations are required, but the class is FREE.

The need for a smoking cessation program was identified by our Early Lung Cancer Screening program. Many of the participants of the program are smokers who indicated that would like to quit smoking.
