Great American Smokeout
When is the Great American Smokeout? This holiday is celebrated on the third Thursday in November
Don’t you think it’s about time to give up the cancer sticks!? Great American Smokeout Day is today. Let’s finally kick the habit. The goal of this special day is quite obvious: to get people to quit smoking, resulting in fewer health problems, and fewer cancer and emphysema deaths resulting from smoking and secondary smoke.
Quitting smoking is not an easy task. As an ex-smoker, this writer knows how hard it is to quit smoking. Often(usually), it takes repeated efforts. That’s okay, as long as you keep trying until you finally succeed. The health benefits and the prospect of a longer life are crystal clear.
The American Cancer Society encourages all smokers to give up the “butt” today. Join millions of other Americans today and take a big step to a happier, healthier, longer life.
