Today is the Great American Smokeout! Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout event. Encourage someone you know to use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. By quitting – even for 1 day – smokers will be taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their cancer risk.

The American Cancer Society is encouraging smokers to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking with The Great American Smokeout.
