Celebrating the
Great American Smokeout!

Quitting smoking can be very difficult and is a tremendous accomplishment. Sometimes tobacco users can receive years of advice to quit, but few congratulations when they actually do.

The City of Philadelphia's Ex-Smoker's Hall of Fame Initiative provides quitters an opportunity to share the story of their tobacco use from start to finish, no matter how they stopped.

Through this sharing, those who quit are recognized for their accomplishment while inspiring other tobacco users to make a quit attempt.

In observance of the American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout, the City of Philadelphia and Mayor Michael Nutter celebrated the accomplishments of the following people…

This exhibit is dedicated to the memory of Susan McTamney, whose profile is included to the right. This member of the Ex-Smoker’s Hall of Fame died January 27, 2014 of smoking related illness. She believed strongly in sharing her story to encourage other smokers to quit.
