If you’re a smoker who would like to quit, the Berrien County Health Department has some good news for you. It’s signing people up for the next round of Freedom from Smoking classes. Spokesperson Gillian Conrad tells WSJM News these classes, offered by the department for several years, have proved to be helpful.
“Quitters are most successful when using a combination of therapies, including resources like counseling, self-help materials provided in this class, a strong network of family and friends supporting them, as well as nicotine replacement,” Conrad said.
The sessions are held every Tuesday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and the next class starts January 2. Conrad tells us being a part of the $10 course is a good way to find a support network of folks who understand what you’re going through. Anyone interested in taking a Freedom from Smoking class should call the health department.
