Celebrate more birthdays. That's the motto of the American Cancer Society in their effort to encourage smokers to kick the tobacco habit, taking the first step today during The Great American Smokeout.

There are events at the Conway, Grand Strand, and Georgetown campuses of Horry-Georgetown Technical College, Coastal Carolina University, and Coastal Grand Mall.  For information about them, check out this Sun News article

If you're a tobacco user wanting to quit, have a look at this WPDE story for tips.  You can also read more about the benefits of quitting and how to develop a strategy on the American Cancer Society's page here. Another resource for those wanting to quit is the South Carolina Tobacco line.  You can learn more about that on the Smoke Free Horry site here
