COLUMBIA, Tenn. — If you have decided to break the habit of smoking, Maury Regional Medical Center offers support through a group smoking cessation program during the month of October.

The program will consist of a series of four classes held each Monday beginning October 1 from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in the First Floor Conference Room at the medical center. Classes are as follows:

  • October 1 – Starting Out & Removing Roadblocks
  • October 8 – Getting Ready to Quit
  • October 15 – Staying Off Cigarettes
  • October 22 – Questions and Celebrations

 

All instructors are former smokers and health professionals who understand the challenges that come with breaking this habit. Group interaction will be promoted in an effort to develop a support network among those with the same goal—to stop smoking. Participants are required to purchase a $10 class guide with exercises for each class topic.
