Great American Smokeout Event Thursday, November 19, 2015

publish date: Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Get ready to lose the habit, and become victorious over tobacco. The American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout event is your chance to triumph over addiction. Every November, the American Cancer Society encourages smokers to go the distance, and to finally give up smoking.

About 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, and tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. As of 2013, there were also 12.4 million cigar smokers in the US, and over 2.3 million who smoke tobacco in pipes — other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco.

By quitting — even for one day — you will be taking an important step toward a healthier life — one that can lead to reducing your cancer risk. It’s a race for your health, and it starts today. Today’s the day that quitters win.

On Thursday November 19th, join Fremont Health and Three Rivers Public Health Department at the Fremont Mall between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to take the first step to quitting. Bring us your last pack of cigarettes and in exchange we will provide you with a free cold turkey sandwich lunch. Also, Hy-Vee has generously provided vouchers for a frozen turkey for the first five participants.   Make the healthy decision and commit to quit!
