Each year, the third Thursday of November marks the American Cancer Society’s Great Smokeout Day. This day is particularly special as it encourages people of all ages to stop smoking for at least a day.
About 18 percent of Americans say they are smokers. Although this counts as a dramatic percentage drop compared to percentages from years past, the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) is on the rise. This means that people do not necessarily stop smoking, they just recur to other solutions.
