Learn to Be Tobacco Free

The Suffolk County  “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program comes to Harborfields Public Library next week.

The program, which is free to Suffolk County residents, offers assistance with planning, support, and counseling. The program also provides over-the counter medications for a fee to participants who are medically eligible.

“Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of death and illness in the U.S., with nearly half a million Americans dying prematurely from smoking each year and more than 16 million Americans suffering from diseases caused by smoking,” said Dr. Tomarken.

Studies have shown that tobacco users who try to break their addiction with behavioral support are more likely to be successful than those who try to do so without support. Registration for the program is open until the second week of each session. Classes will take place as follows:
