Time to Kick the Habit!

The Great American Smokeout® sponsored by the American Cancer Society occurs annually on the third Thursday of November. In 2014, the event will take place on November 20th around the country.

Addiction to tobacco products by one in five Americans is a major contributor to  life-threatening diseases like cancer. Quitting smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes decreases the chance of illness and preventable death, and increases overall health.

Since smokers are much more likely to quit if they’re given encouragement, the Great American Smokeout® offers a chance to participate in support programs, telephone hotlines and special events held by many organizations. At the very least, it’s hoped that if a smoker stops smoking for one day, they’ll find the strength to stop smoking forever.

Greeting Card Universe offers our respect and encouragement to those who choose to kick the butts! Send your own message of support to someone who’s setting aside their habit with Congratulations/Quitting Smoking cards. Order on-line and we’ll put your card in the mail the next business day.

What Are Happy Shoppers Saying About Greeting Card Universe?
“I am the coordinator of the Military Ministry at my church. We send out cards to our active duty in November along with a gift card. When I went to purchase cards at the end of October the only store where I have been able to find military cards reasonably priced was sold out. I started to panic, but did a web search and came to your site. The card I liked was on sale so I ordered them hoping they would be worth the money. When I received the cards I couldn’t believe it they were beautiful. Much nicer than I had expected. I will definitely be ordering from Greeting Card Universe again. I am a very happy customer.”- DIXIE -November 14, 2014

12 Steps to Recovery

Most 12 step programs run along similar principles, with certain elements tailored to fit the needs of people  sharing the same addiction—to alcohol, drugs, smoking, gambling, etc.

If you know someone who has an addiction, what can you do? The first step is Encouraging a Loved One to Get Help for Addiction.

As a friend or family member works hard to recover from an addiction and make a genuine life change, they should have the support and encouragement of loved ones to aid the healing process. What can you do to help?

Learn the language of addiction recovery so you’ll gain a better understanding.

Be patient because healing takes time and recovering from an addiction is a slow and steady process.

Listen when your loved one is ready to talk.

Talk to someone or get therapy or counseling yourself. Addiction affects the whole family and at the difficult beginning of the sobriety process, an addict is usually occupied with their own recovery, not your feelings.

When you want to acknowledge a loved one’s milestones on the road to recovery or a recovery anniversary or birthday, or give some encouraging words, Greeting Card Universe offers uncommon 12 Step Addiction Recovery Cards in a number of unique categories.

Need cards in a hurry? Order on-line, get free in-store pickup, usually within one hour, at most Target and Bartell Drug Stores.
