It’s a Great Time to Quit!

 

Today is the day to QUIT smoking!  The Cook County $1 increase in the price went into effect today.  Yesterday American Heart Association Chicago Metro Board President and You’re the Cure advocate Dr. Sandra Burke participated in a press conference with Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle regarding the tax increase.  Dr. Burke did a great job emphasizing the wonderful health benefits this tax would have on the community including stopping kids from ever picking up smoking and forcing long-time smokers to kick the deadly habit. Check out this link to the story from the Chicago Sun Times featuring Dr. Burke.
