Start A New Life Without Cigarettes
Carla-Jo Kaler, LPN, CVT, tobacco treatment specialist
To celebrate Great American Smokeout month, Pen Bay Healthcare’s Picker Family Resource Center invites you to attend the next session of the Freshstart quit smoking program. The free four-week program begins Tuesday evenings, November 5, 12, 19 and 26, from 5:30 – 7 p.m.at the Picker Family Resource Center on the Pen Bay Medical Center campus.
Carla-Jo Kaler, LPN, facilitates the Freshstart program and looks forward to assisting individuals in becoming tobacco-free. Freshstart is designed to help you stop smoking as quickly as possible. Quitting is a two-part process: stopping and staying stopped. Freshstart reinforces that you are the key to your own fresh start and will teach you new techniques for ending your physical and psychological need to smoke, plus give you concrete ways to handle two major obstacles: weight control and weight management.
The Picker Family Resource Center is pleased to offer these classes to the community free of charge. Please call the Picker Center at 596-8950 to register. Freshstart can be your start to a new life without cigarettes.
