I remember, as a kid, watching my dad cough until he passed out. It terrified me every time it happened. Thankfully, he quit smoking early enough in his life to allow him to live to be almost 80!

Any day is a great day to stop smoking, but today is a day to encourage you even further! It's the 37th Annual Great American Smokeout sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

Quitting is hard, but you can increase your chances of success if you reach out for help. The American Cancer Society is offering many ways to get you started.  Good luck, I know you can do it!
