Learn How to Quit Smoking

Quitting smoking is hard and our team at the Cancer Institute is here to help.  

Our smoking cessation programs are designed to provide counseling and support for those interested in quitting smoking – one of the most important steps you can take for improved health and wellness.

Our own specially trained Nurse Navigator teaches a smoking cessation class through the Cancer Institute. It is available both online and in person – at no charge to our patients at Gwinnett Medical Center. By learning how to quit smoking from a nurse, who really understands the physical and mental challenges, we help participants really understand the clinical aspects of what your body is going through when you quit smoking. We help you learn how to diminish nicotine cravings over time or how hydration and exercise can help.

Smoking Cessation Support Available for All Patients
