Our six-week cessation classes educate you about the hazards of smoking and using other forms of tobacco, the benefits of quitting and the strategies and skills to cope with your urges. The classes meet once a week and are conducted primarily in a group setting, with face-to-face interaction which allows you to learn from each other’s experiences. For your convenience, we also offer web-based remote class options.

An American Lung Association Freedom From Smoking® Program certified facilitator leads each class and behavioral health specialists, respiratory therapists and dietitians visit the group to help provide you with support and guidance along the way. You will receive nicotine replacement therapy (if qualified) and a workbook with a meditation CD. Lunch or dinner is also provided.

Classes are held on the Northside Hospital Atlanta, Cherokee, and Forsyth campuses. Both afternoon and evening class times are offered.
