The Great American Smokeout 2009
For 34 years the American Cancer Society has named the third Thursday in November the Great American Smokeout day. This is the day that all smokers are encouraged to put their cigarettes away for the day. It is always the hope that the smokers will see that they can get by without cigarettes.
Tennessee ranks as the 5th worst for people dying with cancer. This isn't totally caused by smoking, but smoking is the top reason. People with obesity and/or heart disease are even more likely to die of lung or any other type of cancer.
I am a past smoker, so I speak from experience. Quitting can be hard. But the payoff is so worth it!
THINK OF THE MANY REASONS TO QUIT THIS YEAR!
You can be around to see your children grow up, get married and have children of their own.
You'll feel better
You'll smell better
Think of how much money you'll save!

Go ahead and do it this year! Put those packs in your drawer and don't smoke tomorrow. You can do it! Think of how happy it will make your family, friends and co-workers!
