Great American Smoke Out

Thanks to Lisa Davidson for this guest post!


Quitting smoking is tough. If you have ever been close to someone who has tried to quit, you know what I am talking about. Today, November 15th, marks the annual American Cancer Society Great American Smoke Out, a day to take a break from smoking and hopefully love the way it feels to be smoke-free. To successfully quit smoking it's important to offer love, support and patience. Breaking free from the grips of tobacco addiction is one of the hardest things to do, but there is help. If you or a loved one is interested in quitting smoking please call the Wisconsin Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW. You can also visit www.cancer.org for more information on resources to help you quit smoking.
Take some time today to thank those in your life who have successfully quit smoking. And if you or someone else needs help, please reach out to the Quitline or other resources available through your doctor. Life is beautiful, enjoy every breath!
