Thursday was the 28th annual Great American Smokeout. The American Cancer Society asked folks across the country to go cold turkey for the day.
As part of the celebration, physicians offered free carbon monoxide screening and pulmonary function testing at the Colonial Mall in Greenville.
The American Cancer Society estimates each year 440,000 people die in the U.S. from tobacco use.
