Great American Smokeout
takes place on November 17, 2016.  The Great
American Smokeout (GASO), is an annual social engineering event on the third
Thursday of November by the American Cancer Society.  
The event encourages
Americans to stop tobacco smoking
.  The event challenges people to stop
smoking cigarettes for 24 hours, hoping their decision not to smoke will last
forever.  The first GASO was held in San Franciso's Union Square on November
16, 1977.  The event evolved from a series of smaller-scale initiatives.  In 1970, in
Randolph, Massachusetts, Arther P. Mullaney suggested people give up cigarettes
for a day and donate the money to local high school.  In 1974, a "Don't Smoke
Day" (or "D-Day") was promoted by Lynn R. Smith of the Monticello Times in
Monticello, Minnesota.  On November 18, 1976, the California Division of the
American Cancer Society successfully prompted nearly one million smokers to quit
for the day.  That California event marked the first Smokeout.
