Saint Anthony’s Health Center is helping Riverbend residents kick their smoking habit in the New Year. The latest 8-week smoking cessation course starts a week from Monday at 6pm in the St. Clare's Professional Building auditorium. The course will deal with the actual process of quitting, lifestyle changes, relaxation, and exercise and weight management.

Tina Bennett, the smoking cessation program facilitator, says kicking the habit is something many people put at the top of their New Year's resolutions list.



Bennett comments

She says the challenges of quitting smoking can be overwhelming of you try to go it alone, and that is why support groups have proven to be so popular. For more information about the upcoming Freedom From Smoking cessation course, or to register, please call 465-2264.
