Great American Smokeout
Thursday, November 18 is the annual Great American Smokeout -- a day where thousands of American smokers join together and commit to be smokefree for 24 hours. Each year, 443,000 Americans die from smoking. The Great American Smokeout is an opportunity to take the first step to living smokefree.
Under the Tobacco Control Act, the FDA now has broad authority over the marketing, advertising, and promotion of tobacco products to better protect the public’s health.
Also visit Smokefree.gov (http://www.smokefree.gov) for free, accurate, evidence-based information and professional assistance to help support the immediate and long-term needs of people trying to quit smoking.
Remember, there is no such thing as a safe cigarette.
