    Antismoking

    On Monday, August 8, 2005, the day following Peter Jennings’s death from lung cancer, Olbermann revealed on-air that he had a benign fibrous tumor removed from his palate just 10 days earlier. In an explicit monologue, he attributed his tumor directly to his 27-year habit of smoking pipes and cigars. He urged his viewers not to wait until they see symptoms to quit. "Do whatever you have to do to stop smoking — now. While it's easier."[44]

    This marked the beginning of "I Quit," once a recurring segment on Countdown which offered anti-smoking tips and encouragement. On August 16, 2005, Olbermann's NBC colleague Mike Taibbi joined him for "I Quit" to discuss kicking the habit.[45][46]
