Stop Smoking Day

Tobacco use is the single greatest preventable cause of disease and premature death in Texas. More than 24,000 Texas adults die each year of a smoking-related illness. That is more than the number of deaths from AIDS, heroin, cocaine, alcohol, car accidents, fire, and murder combined.

A week before Thanksgiving every year, millions of smokers commit to a longer, healthier future by kicking their tobacco addiction. The Great American Smokeout urges people to stay smoke-free for a day, perhaps forever. Health benefits for ex-smokers and those around them are immense. 

The habit is hard to break but not impossible. Forty-six million Americans smoke. Make the commitment to be one less by Nov. 17. Talk to your doctor for help and resources to quit smoking.
