In partnership with Tobacco Free Florida Quit Your Way program Florida Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) offers free group cessation sessions to help you quit.

 

AHECs offers two Group Quit programs to tobacco users free of charge: a one-time, 2-hour single session and a one-hour multi-session that meets once a week for one hour. Both programs offer education on the health effects related to tobacco use, but more importantly, they teach the benefits of quitting and what to expect when quitting. Tobacco Cessation Specialists and trained facilitators guide attendees as they identify their reasons for quitting, barriers and triggers, and learn skills to cope with withdrawal symptoms.

 

The sessions also cover:

  • Nicotine addiction and medications that help
  • Planning for the quit date
  • Anticipating triggers
  • Overcoming cravings
  • Relapse prevention

Virtual & In-Person Groups are available**

Call toll free line at 877-848-6696 and a specialist on the tobacco team will talk with you about the groups starting near you. You can also visit the Group Quit Calendar page to see what groups are coming up in your county.
