Who do you know that could use support quitting tobacco? Whether it’s grandma, a coworker, your child, or maybe even yourself, most people who use tobacco products want to quit. Tobacco Free Lancaster County (TFLC, www.tobaccofreelancastercounty.org) invites you to participate in the Great American Smokeout on November 17. GASO, or the Great American Smokeout, has been hosted by the American Cancer Society for more than 40 years on the third Thursday of November. The GASO event challenges people to stop smoking and promotes the many tools they can use to help them quit and stay quit.

Join Lincoln area businesses and organizations in supporting tobacco quit efforts during the GASO event. Whether you feel your business has high rates of tobacco use or if you feel like you’re a tobacco-free champion, this free event helps educate and bring together our community to support tobacco quit attempts.

Tobacco use isn’t just a habit, it’s an addiction. In fact, nicotine addiction associated with tobacco use can be more overwhelming than heroin or cocaine. But, when the right timing and support match up, quitting is possible.

Tobacco Free Lancaster County (TFLC) works to protect the public by eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke, preventing youth from starting to use tobacco, providing tobacco education to all populations, and encouraging people to quit.
