Smoking is the largest cause of preventable death and disease in the United States, killing an estimated 480,000 each year and causing an estimated 90 percent of all lung cancers.
About 32.4 million Americans currently smoke cigarettes. Quitting can be extremely hard. Next Thursday, the Great American Smokeout aims to make it a little easier.
The Great American Smokeout, hosted by the American Cancer Society for more than 40 years, helps smokers quit for one day — an essential step toward quitting for good.
It’s easy to participate. Learn how your organization can help smokers get the support they need.
