BE SMART - QUIT SMOKING PROGRAM

The Psychosocial Oncology Program is proud to offer a 8 week, low-cost quit smoking program. This course is offered both in English and Spanish and is available to anyone who is trying to quit or has already quit and thinks they might need some support. Come and be with other people who want to quit!

Group includes:

  • Warm, Supportive Atmosphere
  • Pharmacotherapy Discussion
  • Tips for Breaking the Habit
  • Tools for Conquering Urges and Temptations
  • Techniques to Manage Stress and Triggers
  • Free Nicotine Replacement Therapy
  • Meeting Time Based on Members' Availability

Overall, 100% of people who attended the group in the past thought it was informative and 92% thought it was helpful.

AND IT'S CHEAP!!! 

This is how it works. Each group member pays $50 at the beginning of the group. Then for each session that you attend, we will give you $5 back. That means you could get a refund of up to $40 at the end of the eight weeks. Now isn't it worth it to pay $10 now and save your self $2500 a year in cigarettes?

Groups are held at Montefiore Hospital and at 1695 Eastchester Road (near Einstein). You can choose which location is more convenient for you. New groups start as soon as enough people are ready to quit.
