The Great American Smokeout Is Coming Up on Nov. 15

November 8, 2018

This year’s American Cancer Society (ACS) Great American Smokeout event is Nov. 15. During the annual event, smokers across the nation quit smoking that day or use the date to make a plan to quit.

By quitting, even for one day, smokers take an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their cancer risk.

About 36.5 million Americans smoke cigarettes, and tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the world.

Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits at any age. Patients can increase chances of success with counseling or medications from their pharmacy.
