Smoking out, gum and mints in; it’s time for the Great American Smokeout


Today is the annual Great American Smokeout and time for some new healthier, refreshing and fun habits.

We know it can be really hard to quit, but try reaching for a mint or gum if you feel an urge to smoke coming on. Plus it turns out that people who chew gum are perceived as more fun than non gum chewers. An added bonus is that chewing gum can help prevent tooth decay and weight gain.  And let’s face it; your breath smells fresher with a stick of a gum or a mint in your mouth rather than the smell of stale tobacco.
