Stop Smoking Events

1. The Great American Smokeout Event

The Great American Smokeout Event is aimed at raising awareness about the hazards of tobacco usage and it is celebrated every year on the third Thursday of November. This event was started by The American Cancer Society in 1977 with a view to teach the public on the dangers associated with tobacco use and to push smokers to get rid of smoking addiction for lifetime.

2. World No Tobacco Day

This is another quit smoking event and it is celebrated on 31st May every year. This is an event started by the World Health Organization (WHO) and during this event, particular details are provided to the public on the dangers of tobacco, steps taken by the WHO to fight off large-scale tobacco usage across the world and also the strategies that can be adopted by people to ensure healthy living.

3. Kick Butts Day

Kick Butts Day was started by the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids (CTFK) and it is celebrated every year on 20th March. The significance of Kick Butts Day is that it is a day when the youth takes initiatives by standing up and speaking against tobacco use. On this day, the youngsters empower the fight against tobacco usage by creating awareness about the ill-effects of tobacco and by supporting stringent anti-tobacco laws.
