The Great American Smokeout was inspired by localized anti-smoking events in the early 1970s. The first of these was a fundraising drive that took place in Randolph, MA, in 1970.

Randolph citizens were asked to stop smoking for 1 day and donate the money they would have spent on cigarettes to a high school scholarship fund instead.
