Transcript Cougar Pep hosted a Great American Smoke Out "What If" Campaign at Campus Wellness and Recreation Center to help make students aware of the dangers of smoking. Gail Gillan, Director of Wellness, spoke in her presentation about the effects of smoking and how to quit. Two-thirds of smokers want to and have tried to quit. Because smoking becomes habitual however, "it is hard to break the routine, Gillan continued and suggested quitting only at a "target time, such as after taking a shower and while watching TV People who smoke can participate in consulting or group work, or use nicotine patch or stress-relief ball. One of the main attractions at the campaign was creating a quilt, which expressed sorrow or anger toward people lost loved ones because of tobacco related diseases. Each color of fabric signified someone close to them. Students started making the quilt a few weeks before the campaign. Each person created a piece of quilt with a demo that quoted smoking could kill, hoping that it would charge more people to get involved during the campaign. About 20% of UH students smoke cigarettes. "The campaign is held to help those smokers quit every season: January, April, August and November. August is intended to persuade new students not to smoke; many people start smoking at the time they enter the university Gillian said. Although they may think smoking is cool, the fact is 80% of students don't smoke. Graduate kinesiology major, Fred Miller is a non-smoker however, his father is a veteran smoker of 30 years whom Miller would like to see quit. "We should help those close to us quit before it is too late, we need to encourage them, and pushing them until they achieve this goal, Gillan said. "It was very informative, said Miller. "Many of the things that Dr. Gillan said made me think about I could help my dad quit." -Yasuko Yada ' PIT I>c> i< x %~ 140 Organizations Couqar Each patch of the quilt was made and contributed by UH students and reflects the individual feelings and effects brought on by close members of their families or friends that chose or continue to choose the use of tobacco products.
