No Nicotine November Traveling Quit Kit Tour

In recognition of The Great American Smoke Out on November 16, 2023 our Prevention Specialists embarked upon COCA’s 2nd Annual No Nicotine November Traveling Quit Kit Tour!

Throughout the month of November, our Tobacco Treatment Specialist Teresa visited four Berks County colleges (Alvernia University, Albright College, Penn State Berks & Reading Area Community College). She handed out hundreds of Quit Kits to encourage students to not to smoke or vape.

What’s a Quit Kit?

A Quit Kit is a reusable bag filled with items that you can reach for instead of a cigarette or vape! Everything in the kit is intended to keep you focused on quitting, with items that keep your hands and mouth busy to help fight cravings.

Our Quit Kits include: Hard candy, gum & lollipops Tea bags | Fidget toys | Flavored toothpicks | Info about free tobacco cessation classes | Stickers to remind people to “Be Patient, I’m Quitting” |  A refrigerator magnet with tips for avoiding tobacco

About the 2023 Great American Smoke Out on Nov. 16

We invite Berks County residents who smoke to participate, joining thousands of people from across the country who will quit smoking for just one day. The Great American Smoke Out (GASO) is an initiative of the American Cancer Society, celebrated annually on the 3rd Thursday of November, challenging Americans to quit tobacco.

You don’t have to stop smoking in one day. Start with day one. Let the Great American Smoke Out event on the third Thursday in November be your day to start your journey toward a smoke-free life. – American Cancer Society
