The idea caught on in state after state, until 1977, they were in the country under the sponsorship of the American Cancer Society. If Smokeouts past are any indication, many as a third of the 46 million smokers in the nation may be taking the day off from smoking.

    Tobacco consumption still remains the leading preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, however, about 42 million Americans still smoke cigarettes – a little less than 1 in 5 adults. From 2012, there was 13.4 million cigar smokers in the United States, and 2.3 million people who smoke pipes – other dangerous and addictive forms of tobacco. Behind the festivities of the Great American Smokeout are serious efforts of thousands of volunteers from the American Cancer Society hardworking visiting schools, malls and workplaces to publicize events and distribute information of on quitting smoking. Nonsmokers are also ready to “adopt” smokers during the day, support them with advice and snacks. Support continues for those who decide to start smoking again after the Great American Smokeout is over. The rules are simple: You just quit for 24 hours Smokeout. The wonderful thing is that you will not be alone; You can exchange tips, jokes and groans with the other “quitters,” nonsmokers and volunteers of the American Cancer Society is encouraging you.
