Steps to Successfully Quitting Smoking

Thursday, November 15 6:00 to 8:00 pm

The Great American Smokeout

Tobacco-related illnesses kill more people than AIDS, alcohol, drug abuse, motor vehicle accidents, homicides, suicides and fire deaths combined. As the leading cause of preventable illness and death in the United States, tobacco and its related diseases kill 1,200 Americans each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital will host “The Steps to Successfully Quitting Smoking” on Thursday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Conference Room A at the hospital, 325 Maine, Lawrence. The program is in honor of the American Cancer Society’s 37th annual Great American Smokeout, a day meant to encourage smokers to quit. LMH’s free program will highlight how to break the smoking habit, pharmaceutical and nicotine replacements, preventing weight gain after quitting and dealing with stress during the quitting process.

Due to limited seating, advance registration is required. To reserve your spot, call LMH Connect Care at (785) 749-5800
