The Great American Smokeout

It’s time to quit smoking, and the Great American Smokeout, created by the American Cancer Society, encourages all smoking Americans to quit for one day. The long-term goal of the Smokeout, which takes place on the third Thursday of November every year, is to help people commit to a plan to quit smoking permanently. 42 million people in America smoke cigarettes, and tobacco is the largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. Because death from tobacco is preventable, the American Cancer Society believes in the importance of lowering the number of people who smoke cigarettes in hopes of lower the number of people who die from tobacco use.
