Freedom From Smoking® Facilitator Resources

Facilitators like you are the foundation of the Freedom From Smoking® program. That's why we created this website. It's your source for tools to help your clinics run smoothly and effectively.
Reporting Your Program

We ask all trained and certified facilitators to notify the American Lung Association anytime you schedule a Freedom From Smoking® group program, whether that be virtually delivered or in person. We also offer promotion of all community group programs at no cost through our signature website, Lung.org.

To report and promote your group program, please complete the online form at, Report a Program Form, and submit it prior to the start of your program. Once your webpage is built and launched on Lung.org you will be notified with a direct link you can use for promotional efforts. A webpage dedicated to your group program is a great way to showcase your program to any community members seeking a tobacco cessation program in your state.

Material Ordering

Each participant enrolled in your group program must be provided with their own Freedom From Smoking® Participant Workbook, which includes a workbook with activities to personalize their quit plan through all 8-sessions of the program, as well as direct links to breathing exercises. Certified facilitators are able to access a catalog of all print literature available, pricing and place an order for Freedom From Smoking® materials through the site, Lung.org/PrintStore.

*Please submit your material order prior to the start of your clinic, preferable two full weeks before*

Post-Program Evaluation

After your program has begun, we ask that you report your enrollment numbers through the post-program reporting form at the Final Report Form (within two weeks following final program session). This allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of our program’s delivery and reach.

Online Support Program

Join the American Lung Association’s Quit Now: Freedom From Smoking® Quit Smoking Support Group and Discussion Community to connect with other quit journey participants and supporters – this is a great free resource for program participants and Freedom From Smoking® facilitators!

Lung Champions

Everyone involved with Freedom From Smoking® has a story to tell. The American Lung Association is seeking individuals who have facilitated a Freedom From Smoking® group program, participated in a Freedom From Smoking® program or have witnessed the changes Freedom From Smoking® can create in people’s lives to share their story and become a Lung Champion! Lung Champions stand together against lung cancer and other lung diseases and stand for lung health. By participating in Freedom From Smoking® you have already shown one way you are standing up for lung health. If you would like to help others by sharing your story on why you decided to take action, you can become a Lung Champion Storyteller by completing the Lung Champion Submission Form. Please share this opportunity with program participants as well!

Program Materials & Updates

This section includes PDF versions of many of the forms used during the Freedom From Smoking® clinic. The forms marked with an asterisk (*) contain fields where you can fill in dates, times etc.

NOTE: You can only save that information if you use the full version of Adobe Acrobat. If you use Acrobat Reader, you will only be able to print your updated form, not save it. When you close the document, the content you entered in those fields will be lost.
