January 1st is not the only time for resolving to start healthy habits. The beginning of summer works just as well. In support of mid-year resolutions, the American Lung Association is offering free help to 800 Ohioans who are ready to quit smoking with one of the most effective online quit smoking programs in the country, Freedom From Smoking® Plus.
“Research shows that it takes multiple attempts to successfully quit smoking. So, we encourage Ohioans to try again during the middle of the year with the help of our free online program,” said Lori Younker, National Senior Director, Lung HelpLine for the Lung Association. “The interactive program allows you to create a unique quit smoking plan on your computer, tablet or smartphone. In addition to tremendous health benefits, quitting smoking also has financial benefits. Not buying cigarettes saves over $2,000 a year on average.”
With the help of the Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® Plus program, more than one million people have achieved success with their goal to quit smoking.
From now until September 30, 2022, Ohio residents can access Freedom From Smoking® Plus at no cost—a $99.95 value per person. Ohioans can visit Lung.org/ohio-ffs for more information about the program and to register. Freedom From Smoking® can be accessed online, as a virtual clinic, by phone at 1-800-LUNG-USA, press 2 and through a self-guided workgroup.
