The Great American Smokeout

It is a busy month already. Just thought I would give you a heads up in case you are not aware that Thursday, November 15, is the Great American Smokeout. For all of us in the smoking cessation business, this may be a great chance to get some free publicity and help the public. For those who are thinking about quiting, this might be a great quit date for you.

This event was started by the American Cancer Society in 1976 in California. Since then it has blossomed. Here is an interesting fact: only one in seven people have tried support (such as hypnosis, nicotine replacement, counseling, etc.) when quitting smoking.

To learn more about the event, visit www.cancer.org. They have some great resources that may help you in your business, as well.
