Mayor declares Feb. 13-17, 'Quttin' Time in TN,' encouraging smokers to call it quits

Quitting Time in Tennessee smoking cessation campaign declared for week of February 13 through 17, 2017

The U.S. Surgeon General has said that smoking remains the single most preventable cause of premature death in our society. Smoking accounts for 430,000 premature deaths annually in the U.S., including the deaths of 11,400 Tennesseans. About 5.6 million people under age 18 alive today will ultimately die from smoking unless smoking rates decline, with 125,000 of those deaths among Tennesseans.

Quitting smoking greatly reduces the risk of developing smoking-related diseases. So, it's "Quittin’ Time in Tennessee,” a campaign to promote the importance of and resources for quitting smoking in Tennessee communities.

Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham recently proclaimed Feb. 13-17, 2017, as a week dedicated to promote smoking cessation to encourage tobacco users to call the Tennessee Tobacco Quit Line and make a quit plan.
