Great American Smokeout Day

On November 15th, join thousands of other Americans and put down your cigarette for the last time for the Great American Smokeout Day. Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things you'll ever do, however, you'll live longer and have more cash in your wallet. I remember when my mother and grandmother stopped smoking just a few years ago. Even after losing my grandpa to lung cancer, they tried to quit several times before they were successful. It takes time and you may have to quit more than once before it sticks, but YOU CAN DO IT!

The library has a lot of resources to help you stop smoking:

"Stop Smoking For Good" by Balasa L. Prasad with Catherine Whitney - Explore methods of quitting your nicotine habit without the use of patches, gum, and other medications.

"The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" by Allen Carr - Stop smoking by learning what can cause you to fall off the wagon in the first place.

"While You Quit" by Dr. Theodore Fenske - Quitting isn't an easy process, but the health advantages to stopping are almost immediate! Learn how.

"Kicking Butts" by the American Cancer Society - Kick cigarettes out of your life and plan for lifelong success

"The Enlightened Smoker's Guide to Quitting" - Discovering the reason you began smoking and fixing it is the secret to quitting.
