CDC Campaign Receives Good Response from Smokers

Is there any end to the efforts being made by health experts to make one quit smoking? Perhaps, the right time has not come yet. On the same lines, a campaign worth $54 million had been kick started on March 19, which would make those who really want to quit smoking to call at a toll free number to get assistance for the same.

In just one week of the campaign started by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention kicked, in excess of 33,000 calls were being made, which made it clear that the campaign was very well received by smokers. The kind of response received so far has made it clear that there are many who are actually keen to quit smoking but some or the other way, they have not been able to do so.

Moreover, there has been significant response seen on the www. smokefree. gov website, where the number of clicks has gone up from 20,000 to about 66,000, which is touted to be the best response received so far in the last seven years for any campaign.

This is not for the first time any campaign has been started to make people come out and seek assistance to get rid of the scar of smoking. Those who are smoking are at the escalated risk of range of health concerns.

This campaign is basically targeted to jilt people so that they can understand what all could they have to face in case they continued smoking. The CDC is making lot of efforts to use graphic images of diseased smoker so that significant impact can be generated among the targeted segment.

While the initial response is encouraging, it would be worth seeing if the crusade can actually make any significant difference in the smoking rate in the time to come.
