"Great American Smokeout"

Helping smokers quit the habit has been the goal of the "Great American Smokeout" campaign for the last 29 years. Thursday, smokers were urged not to light up for 24 hours in an effort to give up smoking for good. Medical experts say although quitting can be hard to do, giving up tobacco products can actually add more years to your life. Health departments, schools, and the Internet are all full of information to help you decrease your dependency on tobacco.
