The 21st annual "Take a New Year's Resolution to Stop Smoking" campaign, a national effort sponsored by Pharmacists Planning Service Inc. of San Rafael, kicks off on Saturday and runs through Feb. 7.

The campaign "has helped a great number of Americans kick the habit," said Fred Mayer, president of Pharmacists Planning Service.

As part of the campaign, pharmacies, public health and nonprofit organizations offer educational materials on the dangers of smoking. Also, the Pharmacists Planning Service is pushing a ban on sale of cigarettes in all pharmacies.
