 It’s hard to quick smoking.  Especially if you don’t have a support team. The Tobacco Prevention and Control Coalition are offering a free Fresh Start adult smoking cessation class.

It’s going to be held twice a week for two weeks starting on July 7th.  The first session is scheduled for July 7, 9, 14, and 16.  The second session will be held on Juky 15, 17, 22, and 24.

Classes are from 5:30p.m. until 6:30p.m. at the Wichita Falls, Wichita County Public Health District.  They are located at 1700 3rd Street.

There is limited seating so make sure you reserve a spot.  To do that call (940) 761-7840.

According to the American Cancer Society, smokers who quit before age 35 prevent 90-percent of the risk of health problems from smoking.  A smoker who quits before age 50 cuts in half their risk of dying within the next 1 years compared to someone who continues to smoke.
