suggested activity or behavior goes against your values


or beliefs.


SUGGEST ALTERNATIVES.


  • Propose a safe, healthful activity to do instead.


  • USE APPROPRIATE BODY LANGUAGE.


  • Make it clear that you don’t intend to back down from


your position. Look directly into the other person’s eyes.

won’t take no for an answer, just walk away.

Reasons why smokers die and what tobacco does to you

  • First, did you know that tobacco kills more Americans each year than alcohol, cocaine, crack, heroin, homicide, suicide, car accidents, fires AND AIDS COMBINED!
  • Twice as likely to have a heart attack - the nicotine in cigarettes initially acts as a central nervous system stimulant...once this wears off (withdrawal), the smoker begins to feel the urge for another cigarette.
  • Increases the heart rate by 15-20 beats per minute: this means that smokers' hearts beat 28,800 more times a day, 201,600 more times a week, and 10,512,000 more times a year than a nonsmoker's heart!
