Great American Smoke Out 2003 Thursday, Nov 20th
It has been agreed that The Great American Smoke-Out shall fall upon

are thought to result from smoking. The American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout event grew out

The idea caught on, and on Nov. 18, 1976, the California Division of the American Cancer Society succeeded in
