What is the Great American Smokeout?

For more than 40 years, the American Cancer Society has hosted the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November. The Great American Smokeout is an opportunity for people who smoke to commit to healthy, smoke-free lives, not just for a day, but year round. The Great American Smokeout provides an opportunity for organizations like ours to engage with patients, as a calendar catalyst to make a quit plan or to plan in advance and initiate a smoking cessation plan on November 17th.

Browse downloadable Great American Smokeout Day resources from the American Cancer Society, quit resources from the CDC, and Michigan Tobacco Quitlink resources for providers.
