This year, take the first step towards living healthier and breathing easier - quit smoking. We are proud to be hosting Ash Kickers Smoking Cessation Class this fall to help local residents kick the habit. The 6-session program, led by a trained faciliator, offers countless strategies and support to help you quit and stay quit. These sessions also provide a comfortable group atmosphere that facilitates a natural support network for each participant. We'll help you every step of the way as you work to become smoke-free. You're not the only one to quit, and you don't have to do it alone!
