On September 20, at 2:00 PM, Gina Calhoun, Director of Wellness and Recovery Education at the Copeland Center, will present a Webinar on Smoking Cessation and WRAP. Gina started smoking at Harrisburg State Hospital as a way to get outside each day. Smoking soon became a way of life. It lessened the noise in her head, it alleviated boredom, minimized anxiety and helped her transition from one activity to the next.
After 15 years of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, Gina wanted to become a nonsmoker without the side effect of weight gain. In this Webinar, Gina will share how she used the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) to take back control of her life from cigarettes and how she discovered that WRAP for smoking cessation only worked when she started working her WRAP.
