Guam - "Take a break." That's the message the American Cancer
Society is spreading today with the Great American Smoke Out. Marisha Artero says they encourage residents
to use the day to identify a date to quit and put together a quit plan.
She shared with KUAM News, "We know that quitting is hard and
we want folks to feel that they can be successful in order to be the most
successful it's going to help to have that information so we're doing a number
of things. We have tobacco cessation kits available at the office at no charge."
Throughout the month of November, the American Cancer Society is
also offering tobacco cessation workshops for interested companies or
organizations. They also launched a
youth contest for elementary, middle and high school students. For more information you can call 477-9451/2
