Description
It’s Time to Leave Tobacco Behind
Although the first steps can be hard, finding your path to a smokefree life is easier with the right help. The American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking program is a proven way to quit smoking—and stay quit—even if you’ve tried before and went back to smoking.

Classes with Peers

The American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking clinic is for adults who are ready to quit smoking. Because most people know that smoking is dangerous to their health, the program focuses on how to quit, not why to quit.

What can I expect?

FFS consists of eight sessions led by a Lung Association-trained facilitator in a small-group setting (8 to 10 people). Participants receive personalized attention and benefit from peer support.
FFS includes nicotine replacement therapy (gum, patches, and lozenges) and information about other smoking cessation medications such as Zyban® and Chantix®.
FFS has helped over a million Americans end their addiction to nicotine and begin smokefree lives. Freedom From Smoking® was ranked the most effective smoking cessation program in a study by Fordham University Graduate School of Business.
