The Great American Smokeout is Today.  And it looks much different than it did when it was launched decades ago. 
 
Overall, fewer people smoke and more tools are available for people to quit.
 
David Visiko a health educator with Deschutes County says now there are more smoke free parks, businesses, bars and workplaces so that smoker aren't tempted as often.
 
He suggests teaming up with another smoker to kick the habit. 

" i think it's one of the best things that people can do is find a partner to quit with and actually if you have a spouse or partner who smokes- really encourage them to quit with them because everytime they see that person smoke its going to trigger them to smoke as well."
 
Visiko says in Deschutes County only about 14 percent of adults use tobacco and most have tried to quit at least once. The third Thursday of November is always the Great American Smokeout.  Visiko was a guest Thursday morning on 1110 KBND news.
