That's the goal behind the American Cancer Society'sGreat American Smokeout Thursday. It also would save the state $1.25 billion in health care costs with the decline in adult and youth smoking rates that results from a tobacco tax increase of this size. The kit includes a mint, gum and lollipop to give you something to reach for other than a cigarette, a book of tips for staying tobacco free and a tobacco use tracker in order for you to keep track of when and why you smoke. CDC Researchers say the number of smokers dropped by about 15%, from 45-million to almost 37-million between 2005 and 2015. Smoking can be attributed to about 30 percent of all cancer deaths in the United States, including about 80 percent of lung cancers. The $3.6 million program is part of a broader $50 million campaign to stop young people from smoking. And while cigarette smoking continues to decline, cigar, pipe, and hookah use are on the rise. Great American Smokeout participants are encouraged to use the hashtag #GASO.
