Break Cigarettes

Each year, on May 31st, the WHO (World Health Organization) acknowledges World No Tobacco Day.



Tobacco products are products made entirely or partly of leaf tobacco as raw material, which are intended to be smoked, sucked, chewed or snuffed. All contain the highly addictive ingredient, nicotine.  

Tobacco use is the number one preventable epidemic that the health community faces.

It is one of the main risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including cancer, lung diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. Tobacco use is the second cause of death globally and is currently responsible for killing 1 in 10 adults worldwide.  Following are a few more frightening facts that WHO have provided:
  • Tobacco kills up to half of its users.
  • Tobacco kills nearly six million people each year, of whom more than 5 million are users and ex users and more than 600 000 are nonsmokers exposed to second-hand smoke. Unless urgent action is taken, the annual death toll could rise to more than eight million by 2030.
  • Nearly 80% of the world's one billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Consumption of tobacco products is increasing globally, though it is decreasing in some high-income and upper middle-income countries.
Besides the many health benefits of quitting your use of tobacco, there is a huge savings to your pocket.  Not only in what it cost you to buy the tobacco in its many forms, but it also impacts what you may be paying in your health and life insurance.

No matter what type of tobacco you may be using, you know it’s bad for you!  So why keep it up any longer?  Please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and use today as a stepping stone to quit once and for all!
