HAWC promotes awareness during Great American Spit Out Published Feb. 4, 2010 By Senior Airman Shane Dunaway 36th Wing Public Affairs ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- For Airmen and dependents looking to "snuff out" their smokeless tobacco habit, the Health and Wellness Center offers an opportunity for a whiter, brighter smile as it kicks off the Great American Spit Out Feb. 18. The GASpO, similar to the Great American Smoke Out, promotes education on the dangers and risks associated with smokeless tobacco products. The initiative is preceded by the "Through with Chew" Week running from Feb. 14-20. Both initiatives are part of the Department of Defense's "Quit Tobacco - Make Everyone Proud" campaign. Individuals interested in signing up for GASpO can visit the official campaign site for GASpO, www.ucanquit2.org. The site offers numerous tools to help people quit using smokeless tobacco, including informative articles, factsheets, applications to track the user's progress in quitting and a text-messaging service that send tips and motivational texts to promote quitting. For more information on GASpO, contact the Health and Wellness Center staff at 366-2494.
