Great American Smokeout is Thursday

By

On Thursday, folks across the country are being asked to put their cigarettes out. Thursday marks the American Cancer Society's 36th annual Great American Smokeout. It's meant to encourage smokers to make a plan to quit. Dr. Richard Hurt is a Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic and the Director of Mayo's Nicotine Dependence Center. He said it's a positive way to encourage folks to kick the habit. "The Great American Smokeout really is a great way to focus attention on the single most preventable cause of death and disability in our country, and that is cigarette smoke," said Hurt.
