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.
