quit-smokingAs part of the Ease@Work Wellness Program, Case Western Reserve University will sponsor a nicotine cessation series, which will include guided sessions for making a plan to quit and setting a quit date.

The program is open to any individual who has the desire to end nicotine use and will include:

  • An assessment of an individual’s readiness to end nicotine use;
  • Identification of personalized motivations and obstacles;
  • The development of awareness techniques to avoid possible triggers; and
  • A step-by-step program for ending nicotine use through self-discovery and
    group support, including behavior change, importance of good nutrition,
    exercise and stress management.

Participants should plan on attending all eight, one-hour sessions that will take place on Wednesdays, from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Biomedical Research Building, Room 105 beginning Oct. 30 and ending Dec. 18. View the schedule for details.

The program requires no out-of-pocket cost, but registration is required. Register by Monday, Oct. 28, to Valerie Clause at vclause@easeatwork.com or 216.325.9323.

The series is presented by Ease@Work and is facilitated by Clause, a smoking cessation program facilitator certified by the American Lung Association.
