Get Practical Support and Encouragement to Help You Quit

Did you know that only 5% of smokers quit without any type of assistance?

You don't have to do it alone. Join the American Cancer Society Fresh Start Tobacco Cessation program for one-on-one cessation counseling.

  • FREE to all faculty, staff and students.
  • 4 one-hour sessions provide guided counseling, support and encouragement from certified Fresh Start Facilitators.
  • Topics include understanding the addiction, planning to quit, coping mechanisms for cravings and dealing with withdrawal.
  • Participants will receive free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) upon completion of the program. It is recommended to complete all 4 sessions within 4 weeks.
