Freedom From Smoking®

Your journey to a smokefree life starts here. This program is designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior to achieve "freedom from smoking".

The American Lung Association has been helping people quit smoking for over 35 years through Freedom From Smoking®. Ranked as one of the most effective cessation programs in the country, Freedom From Smoking has helped hundreds of thousands of people quit smoking for good and is now available in a variety of formats.

Introducing the Freedom From Smoking Plus website.

Freedom From Smoking Plus

Quit smoking with the click of a button through the new Freedom From Smoking Plus. A user-friendly interface helps you create a personal quit smoking plan on your desktop, tablet or smartphone. Through interactive features that include videos, quizzes and activities, Freedom From Smoking Plus walks you through the quitting process and offers a surround sound of support from our Lung HelpLine counselors and other quitters through our online community.  See a free demo of this program at

Freedom From Smoking Group Clinics

Our in-person Freedom From Smoking group clinics include eight sessions led by a certified facilitator with a small group of eight to 16 people and are held throughout the country. The program features a step-by-step plan for quitting smoking and each session is designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior. Because no single quit smoking plan is right for all smokers, the program presents a variety of evidence-based techniques for individuals to combine into their own plan to quit smoking. The clinic format also encourages participants to work on the process and problems of quitting both individually and as part of a group. Find a Group Clinic near you.

Success Stories

"They gave me a quit date. I did everything they told me to do and I have never smoked again. They gave me the tools that showed me when I smoked and why I was smoking. It was like a miracle, truly like a miracle. I just kept going—and I'm still going." —Glady
