|Smokeout Day ~ November 21|
Great American Smokeout Day is the third Thursday of November. The goal of this special day is quite obvious: to get people to quit smoking, resulting in fewer health problems, and less cancer and emphysema deaths resulting from smoking and secondary smoke.
Quitting smoking is not an easy task. As an ex-smoker, this writer knows how hard it is to quit smoking. Often(usually), it takes repeated efforts. That's okay, as long as you keep trying until you finally succeed. The health benefits, and the prospect of a longer life are crystal clear.
The American Cancer Society encourages all smokers to give up the "butt" today. Join millions of other Americans today and take a big step to a happier, healthier, longer life.
