Stop Smoking or Stop Breathing

Smoking kills!

What smoking does to you

Besides the fact that smoking costs you a lot of money, it has many other bad physical effects.
Using tobacco increases your risk for cancers. Depending on whether you smoke or chew, it can cause stomach cancer, lung cancer, throat cancer, and many more. It also leads to lung and heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Tobacco use kills more than 5 million people per year. At the rate it's going now, soon that number will be 8 million. Don't be one of those people.

These are some ways you can stop smoking, or using any kind of tobacco.
  • Cold turkey (Just stop.)
  • Nicotine patch
  • Nicotine gum
  • Nicotine nasal spray

  • Get advice and support

There are many ways to stop smoking, but none of them will work if you can't commit to them. You need to commit yourself to quitting, because it's for the good of everyone around you; including you.
