Great American Smokeout

Great American Smokeout - November 15, 2018

Project UNIFORM supports events to encourage tobacco-free lives. Providing tobacco cessation services and resources to support tobacco-free living is one way to show appreciation for our active duty service members.


Project UNIFORM is able to support Great American Smokeout events hosted in California.  These events or activities may be hosted by health care clinics, college campuses, community organizations and coalitions, and other agencies or groups seeking to provide tobacco prevention and cessation information to the military community.


We are able to provide participating clinics, colleges, organizations, and groups with free tobacco cessation quit kits, electronic media, and print resources.

Quit Kits contain items and information to support a person who uses tobacco in making a quit attempt.  These materials encourage behavior change and participation in local tobacco-free activities.

Electronic media includes the placement of ads on Facebook to promote awareness of local and statewide (1-800-NO-BUTTS) tobacco cessation resources.

Print resources, including quit cards, post cards, posters, and flyers are also available. Military-specific resources can be requested when registering for the event. Additional educational materials can be ordered on the Educational Materials page. These materials are available year-round to promote cessation in local military communities.

Cessation resources are also available from the California Smokers’ Helpline. An assortment of cessation materials such as the 1-800-NO-BUTTS gold card, Helpline brochures, and fact sheets are available for order or download at

Event Toolkit, a resource designed to assist communities in organizing a Great American Smokeout event. The military-specific Toolkit provides background information on the events, data on military tobacco use, suggested event ideas, sample social media posts, and an assortment of resources.
