Have you been trying to quit smoking but can’t?
“Breaking an addiction to nicotine can be very difficult,” said Suffolk County Health Commissioner James Tomarken. “Studies have shown that smokers who try to quit smoking using a combination of behavioral support and medicine are three times more likely to be successful than those who try to stop smoking without support.”
The classes are free to Suffolk County residents, though there is a nominal fee for medication for medically eligible participants.
Classes will be held at Riverhead Free Library, 330 Court Street, from 6 to 7 p.m. on Mondays, March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 3 and 10. There will be a reunion on May 1.
