The American Lung Association has been helping people quit smoking for over 35 years through Freedom From Smoking®. Ranked as one of the most effective programs in the country, Freedom From Smoking has helped hundreds of thousands individuals quit smoking for good and is now available in a variety of formats.

Freedom From Smoking Plus

Quit smoking with the click of a button through the new Freedom From Smoking Plus, whose user-friendly interface allows you to create a personal quit smoking plan on your desktop, tablet or smartphone.  Through interactive features that include videos, quizzes and activities, Freedom From Smoking Plus walks you through the quitting process and has a surround sound of support from our Lung HelpLine counselors and other quitters through our online community.  See a free demo of this program online at FreedomFromSmoking.org

Freedom From Smoking Group Clinics

In-person group clinics include eight sessions with a small group of eight to 16 people and are held throughout the country.  Led by a certified facilitator, the program features a step-by-step plan for quitting smoking and transitioning to a smokefree lifestyle. Each session is designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior, and because no single quit smoking plan is effective for all smokers, the program has a variety of evidence-based techniques for individuals to combine into their own plan to quit smoking. The clinic format also encourages participants to work on the process and problems of quitting, individually and as part of a group.  Find a Group Clinic near you.

Success Stories

"They gave me a quit date. I did everything they told me to do and I have never smoked again. They gave me the tools that showed me when I smoked and why I was smoking. It was like a miracle, truly like a miracle. I just kept going—and I'm still going." —Glady
