Resources for Faculty and Staff

In assisting with the compliance of the smoking/tobacco policy, the Office of Human Resources would like to offer smoking stop-smoking programs and helpful links.

Tobacco is the number one preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, and its effects on workplace productivity are staggering. According to the CDC, smoking costs an estimated $80 billion per year in lost productivity due to sickness, disability and death.

Below are links to websites designed to help individuals become nicotine-free. The websites include information on nicotine dependence, tips for quitting, available resources, chat rooms, e-cards to encourage individuals to quit, counseling, and more.

Quit Smoking Now

Quit Smoking Now is our current cessation option for both faculty and staff to attend in support of quitting smoking. The class meets once a week for six weeks in a group dynamic, helping participants through the quit smoking process using tools such as participant workbooks, nicotine replacement therapy and reflection techniques of past and life experiences that have triggered the smoking behavior.

For cessation information times and location, please contact Terrance Harris, assistant director of the Office of Wellness and Recreation, at 386-822-7033 or [email protected]. Flyers will be posted on campus close to the next time the class will be available for both students and faculty/staff.

Tools to Quit

Tools to Quit (TTQ) is another cessation option available to faculty and staff which is a one-time two hour cessation session covering the same information and support.
