Still Smoking?

Join the Great American Smokeout

The American Cancer Society organizes the Great American Smokeout each year on the third Thursday of November to encourage smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting — even for one day — smokers take an important step towards a healthier life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.

Tobacco use remains a pervasive and serious problem among Laborers. More than a third smoke or use tobacco products.

The LHSFNA supports tobacco cessation with a wide variety of publications. These are available through the Fund's online Publications Catalogue.
