The Great American Smokeout- November 17th 2017

Blog Post created by dr_hays on Nov 9, 2017

It’s that time of the year, the third Thursday of November is known as the Great American Smokeout.  In 1977, the American Cancer Society launched this event to encourage smokers to quit for 24 hours. This event has helped people to learn about the many tools that they can use to help them quit and stay quit.  For some of you this may be your quit date, and for others it may just be a day on the calendar, either way we are glad you stopped by the blog to see what the Ex community has to offer. 


I am curious; it has now been 40 years since they launched the event, what are your thoughts on the Great American Smokeout?
