The Great American Smokeout®
Want to Quit Smoking? Start With Day One
Do you or someone you know want to quit smoking?
The Great American Smokeout® occurs annually on the third Thursday of November. It’s the perfect opportunity to join thousands of people across the country who are either quitting or helping someone quit smoking cigarettes – or smokeless tobacco.
Quitting smoking isn’t easy. But it’s worth it!
“Smoking cessation [stopping smoking] represents the single most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.” – U.S. Surgeon General
The Great American Smokeout® is an annual event sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
Need A Day To Quit Tobacco? The Great American Smokeout is Day 1
Kicking those butts to the curb takes time and a plan. You don’t have to stop smoking in one day. Start with day one.
Make The Great American Smokeout® be your day to start your journey toward a smoke-free life.
You’ll be joining thousands of people who smoke across the country in taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing your cancer risk.
Both smoking cigarettes and vaping increase your risk of oral cancer, so your best bet would be to avoid both altogether.
If you do choose to vape as an alternative to smoking, be sure to ask your dentist during your regularly scheduled exams & cleaning about the potential risk factors.
The American Cancer Society can help you access the resources and support you need to quit.
The American Cancer Society is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide support, from questions about quitting smoking to looking for national or local resources to help you quit. To find out more, visit cancer.org/smokeout or call 1-800-227-2345.
