Great American Smokeout: One Woman's Story


SPRINGFIELD -- It happens each year, The Great American Smoke-Out. It's a national effort encouraging millions to drop the habit.

We caught up with Sherri Osterhougt, a Springfield woman trying to quit for the national event, and more importantly for herself. She recently lost her mother to lung cancer and says she wants to be around to see her grandchildren grow. When we spoke to her, she said its about taking it one minute at a time.

"I have been trying to keep really, really busy and diverting my schedule. Making a little bit of a change. I know that when I get into work it's going to be a little bit harder because some of my workers smoke, but I'm going to try and detour and go away from my regular schedule and change it up," said Osterhougt.
