North Country Hospital Offers Smoking Cessation Program

This time of year many people take time to contemplate their lifestyle and the New Year seems to provide incentive to take action.

If you are a smoker, chances are you have thought about quitting. Research indicates that over 75 percent of current smokers would like to quit. The New Year is a popular time for smokers to make a quit attempt.

Recognizing this trend, there is a Quit Time program available at North Country Hospital which will begin on Thursday, Jan. 10, at 6 p.m. The four weekly meetings will take place in the Community Room of the Primary Care Building at North Country Hospital. Participants in the class will learn a variety of techniques to make the quitting process more manageable. They will also be eligible to receive free nicotine replacement products (patches, gum, or lozenges) available through the Vermont Quit Network. Using nicotine replacement can double the chances of becoming smoke-free.

Many smokers prefer to quit on their own. These independent quitters may still access information, support, counseling, and free nicotine replacement by contacting the Vermont Quit Network either over the internet at or by calling the Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669). Even smokers who are planning to quit "cold turkey" can benefit from the information and tools.

For more information about the Quit Time class or to register, contact the Community Health Office of North Country Hospital at 334-3290 or 334-3208.
