SHERMAN, TX -- A special class held tonight is designed to help people stop smoking.

It was held at Share Ministries on East Houston Street. Registered nurse Sandra Clark says this is part of the Grayson County Health Department's "Potentially Preventable Hospitalization" unit, which tries to prevent people from getting sick and going to the hospital.

"We use education, we talk to them about going to a doctor maybe if they need to get prescription medications," says Clark. "There is also the patches, gums, lots of different ways you can do to quit."

Clark adds another one is just quitting cold turkey. Clark says she also discusses "E-cigarettes" and their possible health effects. The class will continue for the next three Wednesdays at 6 p.m.
