November 17 is the Great American Smoke Out: TIP OF THE MONTH:
To be more inclusive in Core Lesson 1, change your wording from "smoking cigarettes" to "use tobacco" in the Make Reasons Lists activity. Project ALERT focuses on cigarettes because they are the most widely used form of tobacco, but we encourage you to discuss the form of tobacco that is currently most concerning for your population. Don't forget to include other forms of tobacco use in your Great American Smokeout celebrations this month!
The American Cancer Society is marking the 36th Great American Smokeout on Nov 17th by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day.
To help your students devise ways to quit, see Lesson 10: Smoking Cessation.
