Tobacco Cessation 


                                     Quit Tobacco.

                                   Be Bobcat Proud!


FREE Tobacco Cessation classes via the American Cancer Society's Freshstart Program® are available to all students on campus. If you want to quit tobacco or even if you are just thinking about it, this program is for you! You will learn about different strategies, techniques and medications that can assist you during tobacco cessation and make quitting easier.

Ohio University will become a tobacco free campus in the fall of 2015. Considering the price of tobacco products, the adverse health effects associated with cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, along with the trend that many employers do not want to hire tobacco users - the time to give quitting a try is now!

To complete the tobacco cessation program you will need to attend one class per week for four weeks. A free two-week supply of Nicotine Replacement Therapy ($25.00 value) will be given to all student participants who complete the program.
