The Great American Smokeout
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Each year, we have the Great American Smokeout. It is always on the third Thursday of November. The American Cancer Society wants to help people stop smoking. The idea is that if a smoker can quit for one day, he can quit forever. More people decide to stop smoking on this day than on any other day of the year.
 
2     Forty-two million adults smoke in the United States. Smoking causes lung cancer. It causes heart disease. It causes respiratory disease. There are more than fifty chemicals in tobacco that cause cancer. Nicotine is the one that makes people crave a cigarette. Smoking causes your teeth to turn yellow or brown. It makes your face wrinkle earlier than it should. It causes your heart and lungs to have to work harder. Smoking hurts others, too, because of secondhand smoke.
