Quitting Smoking

Posted: Updated:

There are a number of reasons to quit smoking:

You can transition along with the new smoke free legislation in North Dakota, make a New Year's resolution, or why not today? --- for the Great American Smokeout.

For Rich Aasen, it was more-so a matter of opprotunity that has made him smoke free since June 27th.

After hospital stay for appendicitis, he decided to quit smoking all together.

Aasen says that while he hasn't noticed immediate health improvements, he HAS noticed the gentler impact on his wallet --- not only from buying cigarettes, but also the heat bill at home with fewer trips outside.

Aasen and his two sisters went smoke free together this year and he encourages those who are thinking about quitting to be their own inspiration.

(Rich Aasen, Mohall Resident) "If you're going to do it. You don't need someone else pushing you. Just do it. That's the easiest way."

This is the 37th annual Great American Smokeout.

According to the American Cancer Society, smoking remains the leading cause of preventable disease in the US.
