Smoking Cessation

How to get started

Binghamton University’s Tobacco-Free Policy will go into effect August 1, 2017, banning the use of all tobacco products on campus property. To support faculty, staff and students who wish to quit their dependence on tobacco products, the UHS Stay Healthy Tobacco Cessation Program will offer a free, four-week program. For more information on current cessation classes and resources go to: https://www.binghamton.edu/bhealthy/resources/smoking.html

Visit the New York State Smoker's Quitline at 1-866-NYQUITS. You can access tips, support and nicotine patches.

Binghamton University's EAP program is interested in helping you become free of tobacco to pursue a better quality of life. Smoking is related to many chronic illnesses including heart and lung diseases, diabetes and certain cancers to name just a few. Current consumers need to know there are avenues, resources and benefits out there to begin the challenging process of quitting. If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact the Binghamton University EAP offices at 607-777-6655 or eap@binghamton.edu to make an appointment.

EAP will sponsor Tobacco Cessation classes once a semester.  The American Cancer Society Fresh Start program is a 4 week Cessation program facilitated by the EAP staff on campus.  Participants will learn that their efforts to cut down or eliminate tobacco products will have immediate and long term health, social and financial impacts regardless of their age.  Participants will also be provided with information on free resources.  Classes are held weekly for one hour.  Those interested will earn a certificate of completion as well as a door prize.  If you are interested in joining this class, register through eap@binghamton.edu, or contact the office at 607-777-6655 to register for classes.
