Great American Smokeout

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time for giving has arrived. Hopefully, you’re prepared for the bonding moments of the holidays. Plus, who isn’t excited about the food? With all this joy and merriment in the air, naturally, you’d want to point your nose to the sky and take it all in. However, it’s hard to enjoy the smells of freshly baked fruit cake or peppermint with the air polluted with heinous cigarettes. Nothing takes away from a family outing more than when daddy needs to step outside for a smoke break. The gift that really keeps on giving is a smoker making the resolution to stop smoking for the holidays and start committing to a healthier more active lifestyle. Your family will thank you, and CDC will always be there for support.

On November 16th, 2017, CDC along with many other health organizations observed the annual American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout which takes place every year on the third Thursday of November. It is a time to encourage people to start their fight against nicotine addiction and give that time back to their families. Some great tips for starting on this righteous path are:

  • Set a date to quit within the next 2 weeks and commit to meeting that date.
  • Let everyone know about your plan to quit so they can support the decision to maintain your health. This can be a great motivator.
  • Turn the craving into something more productive like:
  • Working out
  • Having a drink of water
  • Checking social media where you’ve join anti-smoking groups for support
  • Playing a game or song you like to distract you.
  • Purge all cigarettes and cigarette accessories, odors, and ruminants from your dwelling places.
  • If you’re finding it harder than most to fight the cravings, don’t be afraid to see your doctor. You can always count on them for support of your decision to not continue destroying your body. Wanting to stop is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is something to celebrate. So celebrate your new health and wellness with your family this holiday season. The road will be trying, but with a great circle of support, the sky is the limit. From all of us here at CPR Savers, Happy Holidays!
