On Thursday, November 15, it’s the American Cancer Society’s 37th annual Great American Smokeout!

It’s a day for smokers to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day.

In Washington State, the Department of Health offers a free quit line. Call 1.800.QUIT.NOW for the free service that can help you or someone you care about quit using tobacco.

Different people need different resources as they try to quit. The quit line can support both your immediate and long-term needs. Our coaches can talk to you about overcoming common barriers, like dealing with stress, cravings, irritability, and weight gain.

Anyone who lives in Washington State is eligible for at least one call.

Also, Whidbey General Hospital will celebrate the Smokeout by hosting an information table in their hospital lobby from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with brochures, hands-on demonstrations and information on FREE RESOURCES for becoming tobacco-free. Katherine Riddle, Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist and respiratory therapist, will answer your questions and discuss the many available tools for quitting.
