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.

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!
