In New York State there are 2.5 million smokers and most of these smokers want to quit their deadly addiction. It is estimated that 75% of smokers say they want to quit and nearly 60% of current smokers said they tried to quit at least once during the last year.

Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism aimed to empower young adults to stand up to Big Tobacco. 

The Manhattan Tobacco Cessation Program at New York University College of Dentistry has scheduled an event for Kick Butts Day on Wednesday, March 23, 2011. From 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the entry of Bobst Library on 70 Washington Square South, smoking cessation specialists will be providing information and referrals to quit smoking programs.
