42nd Annual Great American Smokeout Thursday, November 16, 2017

The state Department of Health and Human Services is encouraging New Hampshire residents to join people across the country in quitting tobacco during the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout.

By quitting - even for 1 day - smokers will be taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their cancer risk, but health officials hope this day will motivate you to quit for a lifetime.

¯ 87 percent - The percentage of lung cancer deaths in the USA caused by smoking. Nonetheless, since 1964, the year of that first report, an estimated 20 million people have died because of smoking.

The Marquette County Health Department is providing people looking to quit with quit kits, created to help people make a plan to quit smoking.

If today isn't "the" day, he suggests setting a date to quit and sticking to it.

The Great American Smokeout is held on the third Thursday of November every year.

Bungie is calling it a raid "lair", which functions essentially as a more challenging mini-raid. Curse of Osiris will be available to those who bought Destiny 2's $35 season pass.

The Great American Smokeout works to raise awareness of services that can help smokers kick the habit.

1 year after quitting, risk of coronary heart disease is half of that of someone who still smokes.

Delaware's rate of cigarette use continues to decline.

McClure says it's still not clear whether e-cigarettes or vape pens are harmful to a person's health but doesn't recommend them.

Studies show that many users will attempt to quit several times before they are successful.

Caldwell County Health Department is partnering with the American Cancer Society, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide support as people make their plan to quit.
