The Great American Smokeout is Thursday, November 16th

Submitted by Bedford Youth and Family Services

November has been recognized as Substance Abuse Awareness Month in Bedford since 1998. Our hope is to enhance community awareness of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug problems that may exist among children, adolescents, and adults. As the effects of substance abuse are felt by the whole community and need to be addressed by the whole community, we hope to mobilize citizens, community agencies, schools, religious organizations, businesses, and health facilities to work together for education and prevention.

Every November for the past 40 years, the American Cancer Society sponsors the Great American Smokeout and encourages smokers to quit for at least 1 day in the hope that this might challenge them to stop permanently. It’s never too late to quit!
