Great American Smokeout Today



Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Today marks the 38th American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout. It's touted as a key to helping people prepare to kick the habit once and for all.

"Setting a quit date, like the day of the Great American Smokeout, allows smokers to create a plan dealing with withdrawal, and staying (quitting smoking)," says Joanna Jacob with the American Cancer Society. "It's not just a day for smokers to plan a day to quit, but for non-smokers to support those ready to quit." She says quitting smoking is a difficult process, but support from family or friends will help you get through it.

Jacob says cigarette smoking among adults has decreased from 42 percent to 19 percent since 1965.
