The Great American Smoke Out

Smoke out

Tomorrow, millions of smokers will say, NO THANKS to cigarettes for 24 hours. It’s all part of the Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Many of those who join the Smokeout will go on to quit for good. When they do, their health will improve immediately. And after a year, their risk for heart disease will be half that of someone who’s still smoking. You can join the movement too!
