QuitCore helps people quit tobacco

QuitCore, a free Alberta Health Services tobacco-cessation program that provides tools and support to help individuals build a tobacco-free lifestyle, returns to Lethbridge in February.
QuitCore will be held from 2:30-4 p.m. on six consecutive Tuesdays starting Feb. 25 until March 31 in the boardroom at the Bigelow Fowler Clinic at 1605 9 Ave. S.
Led by trained cessation professionals, the QuitCore program teaches tobacco users how to develop a plan to quit while providing strategies to address recovery symptoms, manage stress and, ultimately, prevent relapse.
The program also connects participants with others trying to quit.
Call 1-866-710-7848 to register. More information is available at www.albertaquits.ca.
Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of disease, disability and premature death in Alberta, causing more than 3,000 deaths each year across the province.
Many more Albertans have tobacco-related illnesses.
