Today is the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout! Smokers are challenged to stop using tobacco for even one day. According to the American Cancer Society, Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US, yet more than 46 million Americans still smoke. The Weld County Health Department is offering some options to help you quit.

You can speak to a Tobacco Education Specialist and receive free quit kits today (Thursday, November 17th) from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, 1555 N. 17th Avenue in Greeley. From 12:15 to 12:45pm a free learning-to-quit class will also be conducted with light refreshments

Beginning Wednesday, November 30 until December 21, a special holiday quit class will also be offered free of charge each Wednesday night from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at Zoe’s Café 715 10th Street in Greeley. Light refreshments will be served at these classes. Call 970-304-6470 x2389 to register for this class.

Another resource to help Coloradans quit tobacco is the Colorado QuitLine. The Colorado QuitLine is a service which offers free coaching and up to eight weeks of free nicotine patches or gum for callers 18 and older. Call the Colorado QuitLine at 1-800-QUIT-NOW.
