HSHS St. Francis Hospital issued the following announcement on Dec. 20.

HSHS St. Francis Hospital in Litchfield will hold “Stop Smoking – Start Living” classes in the lower level auditorium on Mondays beginning Jan. 13 through Feb. 17, 2020 from 5:30 -7 p.m. The suggested donation is $20.

Quitting smoking is not about just breaking a “bad habit.” It is about changing your life so cigarettes are no longer a part of it. Our six-week program “Stop Smoking - Start Living” is based on a model developed by Yale University using the practice of mindfulness to meet and overcome cravings for cigarettes. In a study comparing the mindfulness-based program with the American Lung Association Freedom from Smoking program, those who used mindfulness techniques were twice as likely to quit and had more success at staying quit. You are supported by a wellness coach and your classmates as you move towards a smoke-free life.
