There are many resources available to Auburn students, faculty, and staff who wish to quit smoking. To quit smoking is a life-changing decision and can seem daunting or even impossible, but with the help of others who care and a solid plan of action, success can be attained.
Two great resources are listed below:
The Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy offers pharmaceutical care to individuals in our community who wish to quit smoking. The “Pack It Up” Cessation Program involves personal, face-to-face evaluations and planning sessions with pharmacists. Pharmacotherapy is also an available option for those who need it to facilitate their cessation process.
Appointments with Auburn pharmacists can be made by phone or email:
