Snow Hill, MD- Leaves are changing and autumn is in the air; it is a great time to breathe better and stop smoking. The Worcester County Health Department’s free fall smoking cessation classes begin in October. Worcester Health is committed to helping smokers establish new behavior patterns that lead to a tobacco-free lifestyle. With the smoking cessation class, Chantix, gum, patch, lozenges and other aids to help individuals quit tobacco are available through a voucher program.
