Ideas for Workplace and Community
Get your cafeteria or favorite restaurants to implement a smoke-free policy and provide them with Great American Smokeout tent cards to tell customers that they can enjoy a pleasant, smoke-free meal. If your favorite restaurants won't implement a year-round smoke-free policy, ask them to try it out for the day to give smokers trying to quit a refuge where they won't be tempted to light up.
Encourage smokers who are ready to quit tobacco to call the American Cancer Society at 800-ACS-2345.
Host Smokeout stations where smokers can trade cigarettes or spit tobacco products for chewing gum, breath mints, carrot sticks, or lollipops to help them lick the addiction.
Incorporate Smokeout into employee health promotion or wellness programs. Arrange for blood pressure screenings, fitness activities, or healthy diet counseling.
