Great American Smokeout

Every year on the third Thursday of November the Great American Smokeout occurs. It’s the date that many smokers make a plan to quit. Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, this yearly event highlights the importance of making the decision to kick the use of tobacco.

As UAlbany prepares to become a tobacco/smoke-free campus in 2019, EAP will be collaborating with the Student Health Services and Counseling and Psychological Services to offer extra support to encourage you to participate in the Great American Smokeout.

Stop by on either of these days to pick up smoking cessation information along with a “Craving Kit” to support your efforts!
