Image placeholder title

You've read all the reports about smoking, second-hand smoke and the disastrous affects on health. Nicotine can even be passed along in breastmilk. For any moms out there that are still smoking this is the time to quit. In connection with the American Cancer Society'??s 2010 Great American Smokeout, Target is launching a month-long Celebrate Smoke-free campaign designed to support guests and team members in their efforts to quit smoking.

Target has pulled together tools, tips and products for those who want to stop smoking and stay smoke-free. The Celebrate Smoke-free campaign kicked off nationwide on November 1 and Momtrends is proud to partner with the ACS and Target to make this campaign part of our Momtrends Gives Back campaign. As for Target, they are highlighting their assortment of stop-smoking aids and promoting their pharmacy and healthcare professionals, who can offer support, smoking-cessation materials and advice. Target is also distributing brochures in all Target stores, as well as features in the weekly ad and at Target.com.

We want to help everyone--especially moms live smoke-free. So arm yourself with information and get ready to quit for good. The American Cancer Society'??s 35th annual Great American Smokeout takes place Nov. 18, 2010, and is designed to motivate and empower smokers with personalized tools, tips and support to help them quit for good. Mark your calendar. You can do it! I remember my dad quitting when I was 5. I know it can be a struggle, but you and your family will be stronger (and richer--aren't cigarettes $8 a pack now?). ACS has online tools to help you quit.
