The Tobacco Free Florida AHEC Cessation program offers FREE groups in the community to help people quit tobacco for good. The cessation programs are led by trained specialists who guide participants through the quitting process. They help identify triggers and withdrawal symptoms and brainstorm ways to cope with them. Cessation groups are hosted at local public community centers, libraries, and hospitals. SRAHEC also offers private workplace cessation groups.
