Great American Spit Out 2017

Drop the Dip & Drop Your Risk

When we think about February, we think of a few things. First, it’s winter, which means many of us are spending more time inside with the people close to us. Second, there’s Valentine’s Day. Whether you are single, in a relationship, or married, this time of year just gets us thinking about relationships and love. The third thing? Keep reading and you’ll catch on.

There’s no doubt that romance is in the air this time of year, so don’t let dip get in the way of your relationship. The Great American Spit Out, on February 23, gives you the opportunity to quit with no pressure and likely only positive feedback and support from your significant other.

Smokeless tobacco isn’t just harming your look. When you drop the dip, you will also:

  • Drop the risk for developing cancer of the cheek, gums, and inner surface of the lips
  • Drop those leathery white patches and red sores in your mouth
  • Drop the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and heart attacks
  • Drop the risk for high cholesterol
  • Drop the high pulse rate and high blood pressure
  • Drop the bad breath and possibility of tooth loss

Dropping the dip is a good choice for your health and your relationships. Unlike your girlfriend, we won’t nag you about it. If you are ready to quit, we are here to help. Check out UCanQuit2.org/Ready2Quit for free tips and resources to help you get one-step closer to that perfect selfie. Because let’s face it, gum cancer, white patches, and tooth loss, can seriously mess with your Instagram game.

Drop the dip and set your quit date for February 23 – the Great American Spit Out.
