The Gay American Smokeout 11/20/08

A disproportionate amount of people in the queer community face cancer risk due to high level of smoking within the community. Smoking exacerbates complications in queer men and women who are already at a higher risk for breast, anal, and ovarian cancers.

The American Cancer Society estimates that over 30,000 LGBT people die each year of tobacco related diseases.

So commit to quit, take your last drag and find more resources and meet-up/social groups for those trying to or have quit at the Gay American Smokeout and the LGBT Tobacco Control Network.

There is now a new quit smoking drug available in the market. This latest breakthrough is known as Chantix. It is able to help smokers snub out their addiction by working on the brain.
