Smoking Cessation Program
The Respiratory Care Department coordinates smoking cessation classes on a quarterly basis. Classes are held at Maury Regional
Medical Center on the first four Mondays of January, April, July and October
from 6:00 until 7:30 p.m. in the first floor conference room. The program consists of a series of four classes:
- Class I: Starting Out & Removing Roadblocks
- Class II: Getting Ready to Quit

- Questions and Celebrations
All instructors are former smokers and health
professionals who understand the challenges that come with breaking the habit.
Group interaction is promoted in an effort to develop a support network among
those with the same goal—to stop smoking. Individuals may join at any time and
attend as many sessions as they like. Participants are required to purchase a
$10 class guide with exercises for each class topic.
