Health department supports Great American Smokeout

Health department supports Great American Smokeout

It's for the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout, which is held every year on the third Thursday of November. While cigarette smoking rates have dropped, cigar, pipe, electronic devices and hookah - other risky and addictive ways to smoke tobacco - are very much on the rise. We used to encourage smokers to quit cold turkey on a single day. "By quitting, even for one day, smokers will be taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their cancer risk".

Globally, lung cancer kills more people than any other cancer - more than breast, colorectal and prostate cancers combined, according to Spectrum Health. "Children are especially vulnerable because they breathe at a faster rate than adults". A one mile walk around campus will kick off the event and will end at McMicken Commons from 11 a.m. -2 p.m. with free lunch, quit kits and more.

Oakland University also brings attention to its smoke free campus initiative by participating in a Clean Air Ambassador program. "Just as every successful goal starts with planning and preparation, so too does smoking".

On November 16th, Tobacco Free GLOW is partnering with local organizations to raise awareness and encourage people to contact the NYS Quitline at 1-866-697-8487 which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide support as people make their plan to quit. Throw away your cigarettes, matches, lighters and ashtrays. Nicotine patches, gum, or other approved quit medication can help with cravings.
