In the United States, the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout® is on the third Thursday of November (November 20, 2008). The event challenges people to stop using tobacco and raises awareness of the many effective ways to quit for good.

Research shows that smokers are most successful in kicking the habit when they have some means of support, such as nicotine replacement products, counseling, prescription medicine to lessen cravings, guide books, and the encouragement of friends and family members.

Despite that, only about 1 in 7 current smokers reports having tried any of the recommended therapies during his or her last quit attempt.
