On the third Thursday of November each year, smokers are encouraged to take the Great American Smokeout challenge to quit smoking for a day or for good.
To help those taking the Great American Smokeout (GASO) challenge, the Helpline, primarily funded by the Oklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust, or TSET, is now offering a new, enhanced selection of free services. These services include free text and email support, phone and web coaching, patches, gum, lozenges and more for registered participants. Click here for information about support available from the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline.
More resources for promoting the Helpline, including a Great American Smokeout (GASO) Swiss Cheese news release, can be found under “Brand Specific Materials” on the TSET HLP Resource page (members-only; please log in to view) .
Download flyers, posters, and table tents as well as ready-to-use web and social media graphics to promote the Great American Smokeout! Tools and resources are also available from the American Cancer Society. >>Learn more!
