Great American Smokeout helps smokers quit

ALBANY -- Health officials are asking smokers to give up the habit for one day.

Thats the goal of the Great American Smokeout, which took place on Thursday. The Albany County Department of health and the Hometown Health Center teamed up with the American Cancer society for the local event.

They met with people to discuss what resources are available to help them quit for good, and handed out supplies to get them through the first two weeks without tobacco.
