  • Session 3 — Mastering Obstacles
  • Session 4 — Staying Quit and Enjoying it Forever

This free program is open to the community. Classes are held online via Webex. Participants will need to download the Webex app prior to the beginning of the first class. This format provides you with the professional assistance, group discussions, tips and encouragement from other smokers.
