Fulton County wants to help its residents kick cigarettes.
The county will offer classes that follow the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking program.
Smoking is on the decline nationally and the percentage of smokers in Fulton County — 13 percent — is lower than the national average of 16.8 percent, according to a press release.
Eight classes will be held over October and November. The classes will take place at the Center for Health and Rehabilitation, 265 Boulevard, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the following days:
Oct. 5: Thinking About Quitting
Oct. 12: On the Road to Freedom
Oct. 17: Wanting to Quit
Oct. 19: Quit Day
Oct. 27: Winning Strategies
Nov. 2: The New You
Nov. 9: Staying Off
Nov. 16: Celebration
If you miss the first class, you may still attend later classes during this course.
For information on the smoking cessation classes, contact Health Program Administrator Kristin Dixon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-612-1688.
Fulton County plans to offer the course multiple times again in the future, based on demand. The locations and schedules for future sessions will be announced later.
