Smoking Cessation

UofL Smoke Free logo

Our smoking cessation classes use the Cooper-Clayton Method, a safe and effective way to help people stay smoke-free for the rest of their lives. The Cooper-Clayton Method  is a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program that was started more than 20 years ago by Thomas Cooper, DDS, a dentist and former heavy smoker, and Richard Clayton, PhD, an expert on drug addiction. This highly successful program is science based and uses proven methods, including education, skills training and social support. There are 13 weekly one-hour sessions followed by relapse prevention. Participants use nicotine replacement products such as the nicotine patch, nicotine gum or nicotine lozenge.


Mark Twain said, "Quitting smoking is easy. I've done it a thousand times." Have you tried to quit, too? Don't give up. No matter how old you are or how long you've smoked, quitting can help you live longer and be healthier. One year after quitting, the excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker's. As an ex-smoker, you can enjoy immediate rewards like better smelling breath and clothing, whiter teeth, better tasting food, and everyday activities will no longer leave you out of breath.
