Classes will meet at the Live Well Be Well Center on Greenley Road from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday and one Wednesday for seven weeks, ending with a celebration on August 2. Freedom From Smoking provides a supportive group environment where adults work through the quitting process together with guidance from a respiratory therapist.
