You heard me right. Sometimes quitting isn't a bad thing. Our friends over at Jeffco Public Health are encouraging tobacco users of all sorts to Quit for a Day, or even better Quit for Life, during the annual Great American Smokeout.
Did you know that tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of death in the U.S.? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates cigarette smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke causes 443,000—or 1 in 5 deaths each year!
If you want to take the tobacco-free challenge, there are steps to take now that will help you prepare and significantly increase your chances for success.
Congratulations and good luck if you take the leap!
