Print Story | Email Story

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Quitting tobacco is among the most difficult things someone can do. Many people benefit from attending a weekly class to help them quit.

Through a cooperation among the American Cancer Society, Vermont Blueprint for Health, Vermont Quit Partners, and Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), local residents can attend a free FreshStart Tobacco Cessation class.

Participants choose between two sessions, noon to 1 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m., every Tuesday at SVMC. They will learn new ways to stop smoking or chewing, get tips on how to handle stress and withdrawal symptoms, meet others trying to quit, and receive free nicotine replacement. For those with scheduling difficulty, individual sessions are also available by appointment.

Advanced registration is required. Contact Kathy Dockum, local Vermont Quit Partner at 802-440-4098 or Kathy.dockum@svhealthcare.org.
