Great American Smoke Out

The American Cancer Society’s Great American Smoke Out is incorporating blogs to support the effort.  The GASO blogs can be found at and are written by university students who are trying to quit smoking.  The blogs chronicle their struggles with quitting and capture the real struggle of how difficult it is to break an addiction to tobacco.  I commend the writers for having the guts to put their story out on the web and for it to be a lesson for all trying to kick the habit.  This is a fantastic way to use technology to empower action for the benefit of the community at large.
