MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. -- Many people struggle to quit smoking right away.

Now, a series of workshops in Myrtle Creek is aimed at helping them out.

Umpqua Community Health Center is offering a Quit Smoking Workshop series to help people quit or give them the tools to get there.

According to Oregon Health Authority, in 2014 about 20,000 adults in Douglas County smoked cigarettes on a regular basis.

According to the center, the workshops can be a first step to help save someone's life.

"The fact that somebody is going to walk through that door and attempt to make this huge change in their life is so powerful; that's the biggest, biggest step," says UCHC’s Cindy Noroña.

The Quit Smoking Workshops are held every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Myrtle Creek Community Center.
