May 31, 2012 - World No-Tobacco Day

You probably already know that smoking tobacco is the Number 1 cause of preventable death.

Just choosing NOT to spend a lot of money on a habit that is for many very addicting, and therefore hard to quit—a habit that you are not allowed to do in an increasing number of places—a habit that causes your skin to wrinkle, your hair and clothes to smell bad to many, and your colds and other illnesses to be more frequent and more severe—just choosing NOT to do this one “bad habit” is the Number 1 thing you can do to live a healthier, longer life.

Today alone, May 31, 2012, more than 1,000 people in the U.S. alone will die of smoking-related causes!

Still, an awful lot of people smoke tobacco, and a lot of kids start smoking every day. It's pretty crazy.
The cost of cigarettes can add up to more than a thousand
dollars a year, but if you count in higher insurance costs,
higher medical costs, and lower car and home resale values,
it is estimated that smoking could cost about $10,000
each and every year!!!

This year's theme of World No-Tobacco Day is “tobacco industry interference.”
