NEVER QUIT QUITTING! MAKE A PLAN FOR THE GREAT AMERICAN SMOKEOUT IN MARINA DEL REY

While California has one of the lowest numbers of adult smokers in the nation (yay for us!) — there are still people out there who haven’t yet kicked the habit. Yep, even in beautiful Marina del Rey, where the air is fresh and active lifestyles are just part of our paradise. That’s why we want to remind everyone about the Great American Smokeout on Thursday, November 16th. If you or someone you know is focused on quitting cigarettes for good, this annual, united event is a great time to start the process. Smokers need support and the Great American Smokeout is all about coming together, providing resources and encouraging our friends to never quit quitting.

The benefits to your health start within 20 minutes of crushing the habit and going smoke free.
