Smoking Cessation

The EAP offers a six session smoking cessation support group twice a year. This group will provide participants with printed material and educational information about various aspects of nicotine addiction.

Participants will learn their specific triggers for why they smoke and begin to practice other coping strategies for stress. Areas of discussion may include various strategies for quitting, medications for withdrawal symptoms, and ideas for lifestyle changes to improve chances for success. The group also offers a supportive atmosphere, accountability, and the personal experience of other participants in the group.

Registration for the group is required. Requests for information and registration dates may be directed to the EAP at 472-3107.

Meeting Schedule

This support group meets for six, one hour sessions, once a week. The group is offered one time during the fall semester and one time during the spring semester. The group dates will be announced via the Scarlet and Today@UNL.
