GREAT AMERICAN SMOKEOUT Each year on the third Thursday in November, the American Cancer Society sponsors the Great American Smokeout. This is an annual social engineering event to encourage Americans to stop tobacco smoking. The Great American Smokeout challenges smokers to stop smoking cigarettes for 24 hours with the hopes that this decision will continue on forever. HISTORY Evolving from a series of small scale initiatives, the first Great American Smokeout was held on November 16, 1977 in San Francisco’s Union Square.
