The American Cancer Society (ACS) has planned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Great American Smokeout on tomorrow//.
The objective of the Great American Smokeout over the past three decades has always been to highlight the health dangers of tobacco use as well as the challenges of quitting.
Tomorrow, Americans who smoke and want to quit are urged to call the American Cancer Society's Quitline, which is a clinically proven, free telephone-based counseling program, at 1-800-ACS-2345, or to log on to www.cancer.org/smokeout, to embark on a personal plan to quit.
The program also encourages Americans to endeavor towards a smoke free environment by supporting smoke free workplace policies in their local communities and states so that people are not exposed to secondhand smoke.
Richard C. Wender, M.D., American Cancer Society president-elect said, "The American Cancer Society is here to help smokers who want to quit. On the 30th anniversary of the Great American Smokeout, we urge smokers to learn more about quitting and make a plan to begin a smoke-free life."
