Kick the habit

NEW HAVEN — The Hospital of Saint Raphael will hold a free educational stop-smoking seminar as part of an effort to make hospital facilities completely smoke-free later this year.
The event will take place from :30 to 6: 30 p.m. April 30 in Saint Raphael’s Cronin Auditorium, 1450 Chapel St. Pre-registration is recommended.
The seminar, co-sponsored by the American Cancer Society, will address health risks of smoking both to smokers and those around them. An ex-smoker and American Cancer Society volunteer will offer tips on how to stop and explain the financial benefits of quitting. Representatives from Saint Raphael’s will discuss the hospital’s Freedom From Smoking cessation program and alternative methods to fight nicotine addiction, such as acupuncture and hypnosis.
