LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/8/13)— The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is offering another round of classes designed to help people stop smoking.

The health department is offering a class designed for people who want to quit smoking. The 12-week class will meet 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesdays beginning May 15 at the Public Health Clinic North, 805A Newtown Circle. For more information, call (859) 288-2457.

The health department uses the Cooper-Clayton Method to stop Smoking, which provides 12 weeks of education and support sessions that have been proven effective for smokers no matter how long they’ve used tobacco products.

“Our Cooper-Clayton classes have proven to be effective for those wishing to quit smoking because they provide education, social support and nicotine replacement therapy,” said Angela Brumley-Shelton, tobacco health educator with LFCHD. “These classes offer participants their best chance at stopping smoking for life.”

The class requires participants to pay $10 each week for the first 10 weeks for a total of $100. The full amount can be paid at registration or weekly payments will be accepted. Financial plans may be available for those who are unable to make the full payment. Participants will receive nicotine replacement therapy products, such as nicotine gum, patches and lozenges for 10 weeks of the program.
