Smokers listen up and I’m sure you want me to shut up.  Tomorrow is the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout.  It’s a day for making a plan to quit smoking. I know quitting smoking is hard, but you can increase your chances with help. The American Cancer Society has a lot of tools to help. Don’t go at it alone.

Members of my family were smokers. They have all quit.  My brother was the last of them.  Boy did he have a hard time.  He tried to patch, the gum and other methods. He finally did it cold turkey. He says he can feel the different.  I tried it for a bit. It never appealed to me so I stopped.

So listen up Smokers.  Tomorrow is your day to quit smoking.  Get serious and take action.  It could be a matter of life or death.
