ST. JOHN'S HOSPITAL SPRINGFIELD ILLINOIS: Stop Smoking, Start Living
St. John's Hospital Springfield Illinois issued the following announcement on June 30.
Quitting smoking is not about just breaking a “bad habit.” It is about changing your life so cigarettes are no longer a part of it. Our six-week program “Stop Smoking, Start Living” is based on a model developed by Yale University using the practice of mindfulness to meet and overcome cravings for cigarettes. In a study comparing the mindfulness-based program with the American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking program, those who used mindfulness techniques were twice as likely to quit and had more success at staying quit. You are supported by a wellness coach and your classmates as you move towards a smoke-free life.
Classes are Mondays, July 8 - August 12, 2019 from 6 - 7:30 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: Classes are held virtually online and you MUST attend all six sessions from the beginning.
For online class access, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (217) 544-LIVE (5483). Register online at st-johns.org/mindbody by Friday, July 5. Suggested donation: $60
