Celebrate Moms for Being Smoke Free and Protecting Kids

Mother's Day is a time to celebrate and honor mothers for all they do in their many roles, especially raising children. This Mother's Day, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourages you to congratulate and give the gift of thanks to those mothers who have quit smoking and to offer support to those who are trying to quit.

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Unfortunately, 18% of women in the United States smoke cigarettes. But surveys indicate that at least three out of four of them want to quit.

This Mother's Day, let moms know how important they are to you and how you want them to do something important for themselves and their families: quit smoking. Let them know that you are supportive. Social support from family and friends helps people quit and stay smoke free.
