Class can help you kick the smoking habit

Here in the Mid-South there is a free class that can help you kick the smoking habit.

Baptist DeSoto is giving a free six week smoking cessation program.

Nurses at Baptist DeSoto say they offer education to smokers and help them "smoke-down."

"Smoke-down" means weaning yourself off smoking.

"You have to find your triggers.  If it's drinking a cup of coffee and smoking a cigarette, then we would first take 30 minutes after the coffee to have your cigarette. And then as the program goes on, you wait 45 minutes then an hour," Carolyn Windham of Baptist DeSoto said.

If you need help to stop smoking, the free six week class is at Baptist Memorial Hospital in DeSoto County.

Classes start February 5.
