TOOLS TO QUIT TOBACCO!  Do you smoke? Do you dip? Do you want to quit? IQuit with AHEC in partnership with Tobacco Free Florida is a free program created by ex-smokers and led by trained facilitators who will guide you through the quitting process. Suwannee River AHEC offers a free, onetime two-hour class. The program covers all forms of tobacco from cigarettes, cigars, to smokeless tobacco. Participants in the class receive support, guidance, and a free one month supply of nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches, lozenges, and gum (while supplies last and if medically appropriate).
