What is the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout

1 minute read

No one smokes anymore, right? Perhaps most striking is this number: 480,000. That’s the estimated number of Americans who die from smoking each year. And that’s why we support The Great American Smokeout.

Despite mounting laws, taxes, and societal pressures, tobacco use persists all across the United States.

Smoking is on the rise

It’s true that cigarette usage remains low compared to what it was decades ago, but the American Cancer Society reports that cigars, pipes, hookahs, and other ways to consume tobacco are on the rise in recent years.

In fact, tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States, with an estimated $300 billion a year in costs attributed to smoking-related illness.

The Great American Smokeout

This nationwide event serves as an intervention and support system for those who are ready to quit smoking and for those who want someone they know to consider a change.

The cause is simple: Quit smoking for one day.

That one day (November 16, 2017) without smoking can start a positive, lasting change in someone’s life. But even if it lasts for only that one day, that’s a step in the right direction.

For all the reasons people decide to smoke–stress, habit, image–there are just as many reasons to quit: improving health, saving money, protecting family and friends. And it’s all worth it.

In order to stop smoking, many people need strong, consistent support. So for tips that can help you or a loved one quit smoking, visit the provided links to The Great American Smokeout website.

And please join us Thursday, November 16th, in putting down the tobacco and saving all that smoking for the Thanksgiving turkey.

You’ll be glad you did.
