About Quitters

Quitters is based on a program that teaches skills proven by research to help smokers quit for good. The classes will focus on addressing all aspects of smoking to help increase your chance for success.
  • Learn about nicotine dependence and its multiple effects on the brain and body
  • Explore the various tools and strategies available to help reduce withdrawal symptoms, including a brand-switching technique and nicotine replacement therapies
  • Address emotional dependence and learn coping skills for dealing with stressful situations without smoking
  • Determine individual habits and behaviors around smoking and develop new routines
  • Pro-actively plan for dealing with triggering situations or environments
  • Prepare for cravings and how to control them

One of the biggest advantages of this program is the element of group support. Members are encouraged to support one another both in and outside of group.

Class schedules

Classes are held in the Student Services Building (SSB) on the 5th floor in the large conference room on various days and times throughout the year.
