Quitting smoking is one of the hardest health behaviors to change. But it is also one of the best health decisions you can make.
There’s an orientation session for the next cycle of the MSU Smoking Cessation Program on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in room 247 of Olin Health Center. The orientation session allows attendees to learn about the program and get all their questions answered. No commitment is required on the enrollee’s part until after the orientation is complete, and then it’s up to them! To register for the orientation, employees or their adult, benefits-eligible family members should call 517-353-2596 or send an email to Health4U@msu.edu.
Detailed information about the program is available at http://health4u.msu.edu/msusmokingcessation.htm.
Enrollees in the 2012 MSU Smoking Cessation Program have more treatment options available than in the past. They can quit smoking with the help of Chantix® or Zyban® (Buproprion) or no medication at all. Health4U has one of most successful smoking cessation programs in the country as measured by a 15-month cessation rate of over 38%. Most programs claim 15-20% success at six months after quitting.
If you are thinking about quitting smoking, consider attending the September 19 orientation session! You also can encourage your colleagues or benefits-eligible family members to attend.
No pressure. Confidential. You can stop smoking…the MSU Smoking Cessation Program can help!
