Yesterday was the Great American Smokeout. A national day for quitting for all ages. Of course quitting smoking, even for a day, is an awesome step forward for health. Clearly finger-wagging and guilt-tripping really don't help smokers quit. I remember as a child lying on the floor when around a family member who was smoking saying, "Smoke rises... I'll stay down here." Fairly ineffective, I'm certain. Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson of Seattle Children’s is the author of this post.
