What Is The Great American Smokeout?

The Great American Smokeout is a day for all current smokers in the United States to come together and quit tobacco use. The great American Smokeout was started nationwide in 1977 by the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society has created the necessary resources to aide tobacco users in their quest to quit. Examples of the resources are:

  • Nicotine replacement products
  • Stop-smoking groups
  • Telephone smoking cessation hotlines
  • Guidebooks
