Great American Smokeout - November

What is the Great American Smokeout?

Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout. They may use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. The event challenges people to stop using tobacco and helps people know about the many tools they can use to quit and stay quit. 

We have been bringing the Great American Smokeout to campus for more than 15 years in an effort to raise awareness about how smoking impacts our health as individuals and as a campus community.

S.A.F.E. peer educators will be chalking the campus to illustrate that anyone smoking should stay at least 20 feet away from campus buildings. The chalking effort is a way to raise awareness about this campus policy and to share information about the health impact of tobacco use in our community.

Smoking Cessation Services Available at Health Services 

You will be most successful in kicking your tobacco habit when you have support and utilize multiple measures rather than using only one. For example, some people use a nicotine replacement product along with meditation and counseling. The good news is, we offer many services to help you kick your tobacco habit to the curb...for good! 

Services are available to ALL UNH students and most are covered by the Health Fee that is included in your full-time tuition. What isn't covered by the Health Fee is offered at reduced cost and is explained to you before care is provided and you are billed. 
*These services are also available to UNH employees and dependents over 18. Healthy UNH has compiled a list of tobacco cessation services for UNH Employees...
