Quit tobacco Class - Free of Charge

The YWCA Titusville is set to partner with the Northwest Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Program (NWPA TCP), and Pennsylvania Department of Health to offer free cessation training and relapse prevention. Free Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT) such as nicotine patches, gum and lozenges, and Chantix and Wellbutrin/Zyban, are available to participants who are uninsured or whose insurance does not fully cover NRT medications.

Classes begin October 24 at 5:30 PM and run five consecutive Tuesdays ending November 21. The hour-long session will focus on developing individualized quit plans with the last class transitioning into a walking or exercise plan to assist with relapse prevention. Adding exercise as part of relapse planning seeks to remove common obstacles people face when attempting to quit tobacco; concern of weight gain, fear of relapse and stress management.

After class completion, participants will be invited to join one of the YWCA’s fitness programs which include Zumba, Weight Training, and Yoga. Participants may also organize a weekly walking group for continued support and serve as a healthy alternative to tobacco use. Former smokers are also encouraged to join the relapse prevention program and are always welcome to come to classes and share their stories of success.

Registration is required by Monday, October 23 at 3 PM by calling the YWCA at 814.827.2746.

As a bonus, registering for the cessation class will automatically enter the participant’s name into a drawing for a free turkey as part of the local Great American Smokeout (GASO) “Cold Turkey” campaign. The “Cold Turkey” Campaign asks tobacco users to use GASO, which falls on November 16 as the day to plan to quit or to begin a quit plan. Other quit programs also qualify individuals to enter the drawing. For more information on those programs or the “Cold Turkey Drawing” call 814.758.1919.
