Great American Smokeout Challenge Helping People Live a Healthier Lifestyle

Mornings

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 38 million Americans smoke cigarettes.

Smoking can cause heart disease, strokes and coronary heart disease and remains the single largest preventable cause of death and illness in the world.

Quitting can be incredibly hard, but also can be achieved through the right steps.

The Great American Smokeout Challenge starts on November 15 and can be the beginning of your journey to a better, healthier lifestyle. 

The Great American Smokeout is an annual event sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

It is held on the third Thursday of November.

This social engineering event focuses on encouraging Americans to quit tobacco smoking.

People are challenged to stop smoking for at least 24 hours assuming that their decision not to smoke will last longer, hopefully forever.
